GOOD TO VERY GOOD. This 9ct Gold antique Bloodstone swivel fob is in good to very good condition! Both of the hard Bloodstone Agate pieces are completely perfect and chip-free, with lovely rich dark-green colouring and orangey-red flecks. The equestrian rope-like design to the swivel is quite unusual and is in excellent working condition, she spins freely with a nice smooth movement.
There is one small imperfection on section of the wide Gold rim around the stones, which has a narrow crack; the gems appear quite solid and there is no movement in the setting whatsoever, indicating the Gold has not split all the way through. Treated with care this handsome Edwardian fob will bring many more years and decades of joy!
