This antique Victorian Silver spinning fob pendant is a lovely example of Victorian jewellery, and is a great size for daily wear and the fob spins perfectly all the way around!
It's a gorgeous piece to wear as it feels quite substantial to hold, and the cold glossy gems feel smooth and luxurious. It's fully hallmarked English Sterling Silver with beautiful thick slices of natural Carnelian and Bloodstone.
The rich umber of the Carnelian and the deep green of the Bloodstone work beautifully together, and the woven detail of the setting is absolutely charming!
It looks great whatever you're wearing, and works well either on a simple Silver chain, a dark velvet ribbon, or a leather chord in summer for that Boho chic look.
The chain pictured is not included. A selection of new Sterling Silver chains can be added at the checkout or by request. If you need any help choosing please get in touch!

VERY GOOD / EXCELLENT: This beautiful antique Victorian Silver spinning fob pendant is in gorgeous ready to wear condition. The fob spins all the way round nicely and the Silver setting and string and durable. The Bloodstone and the Carnelian are absolutely excellent! The Bloodstone has a small flea-bite to the very edge which is quite subtle and Carnelian is faultless; clean, smooth and wonderful rich burnt umber colour.
The pendant is hallmarked for the year 1896, although this is a little difficult to read... after the many years of being spun the hallmarks in the Silver have been softly smoothed over! It's a beautiful and affordable Victorian pendant you can wear daily and would make a lovely gift for any occasion.
