VERY GOOD: This rare Victorian 18ct Gold Citrine intaglio fob is in sublime condition for its age! All of the intaglios are crisp, and the elegant twisted bale still retains its gorgeous saturated colour of 18ct Gold. There are some tiny signs of wear to the Constance inscription, as well as some little fleabites to the Citrine's facets, but this is imperceptible when worn. The swivel mechanism is smooth and easy to move also. You are sure to fall in love when you receive this incredible 19th-century fob!
