This attractive antique 9ct Gold swivel fob pendant is a genuine English antique, dating from just past the end of the Edwardian period.
It's crafted from a rosy coloured 9ct Yellow Gold with a decorative link setting, and set with traditional gemstones of the time, a beautiful mottled brown Agate and Bloodstone. The Bloodstone is a dark green agate itself with flecks of rust-red throughout, hence its name blood-stone.
The fob is a great wearable size and the lovely rosy Gold compliments the browns and green of the gemstones perfectly. It looks great worn with a simple Gold chain, and what's more because it swivels you effectively get two pendants for the price of one!
The chain pictured is not included. A selection of solid 9ct Gold chains are available to add at the checkout from £50.

VERY GOOD / EXCELLENT: This lovely little fob pendant is in very good antique condition and is ready to wear and enjoy! Both the Bloodstone and the brown Agate gems are smooth and completely free of any cracks or chips and the swivel itself moves freely. All the different Gold components are beautifully matched and all stamped with old antique hallmarks.There is a small amount of play within the settings as is typical of fobs of this style. The Agate and Bloodstone will wobble ever so lightly if firmly pressed but do not move otherwise, so are nice and secure with no risk of coming out.
