So many 'gold' fobs that are gold filled are being passed off as solid gold which is why it is essential to source fully hallmarked gold fobs. English hallmarks guarantee you know the composition & date. Without these all is guess work with often the buyer getting less than they bargained for. 'Tested for gold' does not mean an item is gold if the test is flawed. Hallmarks leave nothing to chance.
This splendid Victorian 9 ct gold fob is fully hallmarked. This is a spinner fob which works perfectly. It was assayed at Birmingham in 1897 & what a wonderful talisman this is! The whole piece is in superb condition. The fob is set with a blood stone & a carnelian & it is no accident that these gems were chosen for this stylish Victorian gold fob. In ancient times Heliotrope / Bloodstone was admired as the most beautiful of the Jaspers. This gem has also been called Christ's Stone & the qualities it is said to carry are the purity of blood, vitality & strength as well as courage & passion. It is considered a powerful talisman that protects the wearer.
Legend has it that the 'Blood Stone' was formed when Jesus Christ was crucified & his blood fell on to the green earth & turned it to stone. Another legend is that the blood of Christ from the spear injury fell on to Green Jasper lying at the foot of the Cross. It is not surprising that this gem is symbolic of noble sacrifice.
In ancient times carnelians were given to those who needed to become bold. Warriors wore carnelian around their necks to give them great physical power & courage. This gem stone was also used to show the higher rank of the Egyptian master architects. At one time it was believed to prevent illness & the Plague.
The colour / color of carnelian ranges & this one is a deep subtle & vibrant red - Autumn red. This stone is attributed with many qualities such as endurance, leadership, courage & motivation. It is also said to attract prosperity & bring good luck. Known as a talisman carnelians have protected through out the ages.
The dark reddish brown hues are associated with the male energy stone. This carnelian is very dark.
This large fully hallmarked 9 ct gold fob measures almost 3 cm high X 2.5 cm & weighs 7.1 grams.
