This impressive Edwardian Art Nouveau 9 ct gold fob is fully hallmarked with the maker's mark being R C into a heart. It is also marked '9 CT'. This fob was assayed in Birmingham in 1903.
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.
The whole piece is elegant & in excellent condition. The fob is set with a carnelian & it is no accident that this gem stone was chosen for the adornment. 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. Measures almost 3 cm X 1.3 cm & weighs 7.6 grams.
We understand how time consuming it can be to source a gold locket because so many of the lockets for sale are rolled gold or gold plated.
To save you time we only source fully hallmarked gold lockets aged over 100 years.
You will not see rolled gold, gold plated or gold back & front lockets in our stores.
We include images of the hallmarks and so you can be certain of the antiquity and purity of the antique gold lockets in our store.
