This gorgeous Amethyst wax seal fob is a wonderful piece of antique jewellery.
The foiled gemstone is simply inscribed with the name "Amy". It's easy to imagine that this fob was owned by a wealthy Victorian lady who would have used it to stamp her signature into the wax seals on her letters and correspondence. How romantic!
It immediately invokes a vision of Victorian England, Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey.
To wear a fob like this is to carry with you a real piece of history; an intimate connection to the past.
