How divine is this antique 'stars and compass' masonic watch key pendant! Her Gold cased body boasts embossed flowers and ornate detailing, perfectly framing the Sardonyx and Agate.
Intricately hand carved into the creamy layer of her Agate are petite stars and a masonic compass exposing the inky black layer. Compasses are symbolically employed to draw a boundary line around our desires to avoid overindulgence and maintain moderation.
This Victorian fob would originally have been used to wind watches, allowing the hands to continue to spin and adjust the time. Although not used for this in the modern day, she still makes for an utterly gorgeous and unique pendant that will look striking suspended from a dainty Gold chain!
