This petite antique 18ct Gold Amethyst "Adieu" fob such a sweet and lovely piece of Victorian jewellery. Rich in Art Nouveau sensibilities, this romantic piece would have been used as a seal, we can just imagine how many love letters it has touched!
Purple and Gold is such a regal combination, and the vibrant hued Amethyst just fits perfectly with the elegant 18ct Gold swirls. We think this fob would be a remarkable unique pendant, just pair her with an antique split ring or delicate pendant chain!
