Trust Badge


This impeccable antique Gold cased Carnelian wax seal fob features a crisp and handsome Roman face deeply engraved into the centre of the Carnelian.

Portraits of Roman emperors were a popular choice for a gentleman's fob, as they associated themselves with and found comfort in the powerful ruling presence. Plus, it was also an assertion of their masculinity. The ornate body of the fob consists of lovely curls, foliate engravings and flowers.
