It must be said he Lillicoco team have a bit of a "thing" for antique Georgian fobs, and this one is truly enigmatic!
This 9ct Gold Georgian fob is a fine example of Georgian jewellery, and contains all of the things we love about it. It's regal, it's sumptuous and elegant, and strikes the perfect balance between ornate and masculine.
The fob bears a pristine Bloodstone seal with the motto "Fortes Fortuna Juvat", which translates to "Fortune favours the brave"!
We adore the deeply carved design that looks like the vaulted ceiling of a Gothic cathedral, and the flowery border as the Gold and hard-stone meet.
We feel it's former owner would have been quite a character- something about the sharpness of the dagger and the sheer confidence of the piece makes us think he (or she) wasn't one to be meddled with!
Wear it as a fob, a charm or a pendant as an amulet for strength and courage.
