A fine bloodstone charm or watch fob set into 9 karat gold form that resembles an urn with a lid. This piece was originally a fob, but today can be worn as a curious charm with some personal history. The charm is remarkably well made, with scrolling detail and ornamentation from top to bottom. The urn form has some grill gold-work, which gives this 1 inch urn-like charm some sculptural form. The watch fob dates to the Victorian era, and it most likely comes from Scotland. The signet part, or signature on this ring is engraved on the bloodstone gem. The national Scottish flower decorates the center, and around it we see the name of Denna ( and perhaps the last night of Roberts) engraved on the stone. Signet fobs where worn by distinguished persons, oftentimes with the bloodstone featuring a crest or family insignia. This insignia was then pressed onto wax to seal documents, or sign important statements.

Bloodstone has been treasured since the Middle Ages. It was thought of as a talisman for good health and a long life. Additionally, the bloodstone was believed to bring its owner respect, riches, fame and good fortune. This particular stone is a vibrant bright green with specks of red throughout. A perfect example of a "blood" stone.

The charm weighs 5.3 grams, and is 1 inch with a square bloodstone that measures 1/2 by 1/2 inch. It has a generous bale at the top making it ready to attach to the chain of our choice. A nice piece of history and a beautiful antique charm!
Gold was acid tested to be 9K.
