An appealing Edwardian fully hallmarked 9ct gold bloodstone and carnelian swivel fob which was tested for purity at Birmingham Assay Office in 1904. This beautiful and highly collectible antique watch accessory is paired with an 18 inch necklace so that it can be worn straightaway as a pendant. This delightful fob would look so stylish hanging from a watch chain.
Bloodstone and carnelian were traditionally set in watch fobs.
Bloodstone is deeply symbolic and sought-after. The green jasper has red inclusions of hematite. The red inclusions are said to resemble spots of blood, hence the name bloodstone. Christian legend refers to the ground being covered in the blood of Christ during the Crucifixion. Bloodstone is considered to be a powerful talisman giving the wearer courage & success.
Carnelian is said to imbue the qualities of courage and great physical power.
This piece is in good condition.
