This is by far the most unusual antique seal fob pendant we've had the pleasure of encountering, she's a very particular piece of antique jewellery!
We just can't get over the skill that has gone into hand cutting the banded Agate, it's absolutely astounding! The straight lines and angles created with movement alongside the graduating natural Agate bands creates a feast for the eyes!
The Silver ring in the centre of the pendant allows movement, adding both a playful element and making the use of the engraved stamps on either end easier. As with all Victorian jewellery the attention to detail is next to none and the silver work is expertly crafted.
If your name is Emma or you know an Emma then this antique seal fob pendant is a no brainer! But even if not this would still make a wonderful addition to your jewellery collection or a fantastic gift.
