Vintage pinchbeck watch fob pendant with red rhodolite on sterling silver chain with sterling silver and 14kt yellow gold fill beads.
Fobs are charms or ornaments that were commonly worn by men in the Victorian Era as counter weights to their pocket watches. The fob was attached by a strap, chain, or ribbon to help the wearer locate their pocket watch.
Similar to key chains, watch fobs came in a variety of styles and functions. Fobs could be decorative, informative, and functional, all at the same time. Most were made of gold filled metal, and featured semi precious stones such as bloodstone or carnelian.
All Leoni & Vonk jewellery is packaged in a black wallet/pouch.
