This Georgian 12ct Gold Chalcedony intaglio fob is the perfect piece of the past to add to your jewellery collection. The Latin inscription reads "Vertitur In Diem" which translates to "It Is Changing Into Today".
At the centre is a meticulously kept armorial crest of the Farquhar and Farquharson family, a noble Scottish family that originally owned Balmoral Castle, a residence now favoured by Queen Elizabeth I. What a unique way to connect yourself with Scottish nobility and British royalty!

EXCELLENT: This Georgian 12ct Gold Chalcedony armorial crest fob is in spectacular condition for its age. The trumpet of the Fob has lasted very well indeed, with the 12ct Gold mellowing to accrue a soft blush tinge with age. The White Chalcedony intaglio is nice and crisp, with the inscription and armorial shield clear for all to see. You can enjoy wearing this fob as a pendant or using for its original purpose as a wax seal!
