This Victorian Citrine fob pendant is perfect for a November birthstone baby, or any other Citrine lover! The gorgeous 9ct Gold casing is a perfect match for the sunshine-yellow gemstone, which is presented here in beautiful antique condition.
The beauty of this design lies in its simplicity. Resembling a stirrup, this fob is elegantly understated. The Citrine is unembellished; possibly ready to be adorned with your initials, a meaningful symbol or even a family crest!
Originally these fobs were designed to be used as seals to stamp the wax on letters, long before we had email. This one is still a blank slate... What would you make of it?
ERA: Victorian (1837-1900)
MEASUREMENTS: The Citrine stone measures 15mm long by 13mm wide. The pendant itself is 35mm Deep (measured from Fob's face to bottom of chain's hole).
MATERIALS: 9ct Gold, Citrine.
HALLMARKS: None present
VERY GOOD: Overall this Victorian Citrine fob pendant is in remarkable condition, especially considering its venerated age! As with most pieces from the 19th Century, this fob is showing some signs of its age, most noticably in this case where the Gold casing has started to wear thin in a few of the most exposed corners and edges. However, this is only noticeable on very close inspection and doesn't detract from the piece at all, if anything it adds to its antique charm. The Citrine is perfect, with no chips or nibbles at all. Overall, a beautiful piece of antique jewellery!
Although this isn't a reflection on its condition, please be aware that the bale has been deliberately offset (i.e. isn't straight when viewed from the side), and this is so that the fob sits correctly on the chest when worn as a pendant.
