This antique lion & olive branch Carnelian intaglio seal fob is a stunning statement pendant. Complete with a large 23mm diameter Georgian spit ring, this antique pendant will leave a lasting impression on every onlooker.
The entirety of this pendant is crafted from bright and buttery 9ct Gold case, animating each pretty groove, floral detail and curl. But, that is not the only detail that we love, we love the hidden meaning within the fob's intaglio. The magnificent beast itself is shown clutching a olive branch, making this a combined symbol of power and peace.

VERY GOOD: This antique lion & olive branch Carnelian intaglio seal fob is in superb condition throughout. The Carnelian is a sought after pumpkin-spice hue, set well without any noticeable scratches or abrasions to both the gem and the intaglio. There are some little signs of wear to the 9ct Gold casing, mainly around the fob corners and the bale, but this is not noticeable when worn. Plus, the large split ring is just inviting more fobs, charms and pendants to its centre, so you can easily add your own personal touch.
