We love beautiful historical artefacts here at Lillicoco, and this antique 9ct Gold fob pendant with its Chalcedony heraldic crest will make a stunning addition to any jewellery-lovers treasure-chest.
This fob's crest has a Lion above a family crest intaglio and originally, it would have been used as a unique signature stamp to close envelopes with a wax seal.
Historically named "the king of beasts", the Lion symbolises such noble traits as loyalty, valour and stateliness!
Encased in an ornate design of solid 9ct Gold, this fob is a beautiful representation of wonderful craftsmanship from the Victorian era!

HALLMARKS: None present, tested as 9ct Gold
EXCELLENT: This antique 9ct Gold fob pendant is in wonderful condition. She is encased in 9ct Gold which has a fantastic antique Gold hue to it. The embossed framework is still clear and precise. The bale is connected to a spinner which adds a lovely element of surprise but would stay still when worn. The Chalcedony is a milky blue colour set into the Gold well and still has a wonderfully clear engraved stamp in it. Ready to be worn for many more moons to come!
