Antique Carnelian Fob Pendant 'Knowledge', in 15k & 18k Gold, circa 1840

His tie was striped with shades of crimson; his tailored suit was handsome and charcoal. Her confidence was hardly ever startled. And yet, this man, whom she’d never met, asked her the time because his pocket watch stopped. And all she could do was giggle. He tucked his watch and fob in his pocket, still wondering the time. She pulled out her phone and showed him the clock, without saying an actual word. He thanked her, as a gentleman would, and handed her his business card, with his number on the back. And again, all she could do was giggle. 

This antique Victorian carnelian watch fob was made circa 1840 in England. The bright red oval carnelian features an intaglio seal of a detailed family crest, made up of a goat head at the top of a Coat of Arms. The banner near the bottom reads, “SCIENTIA”, which is Latin for ‘knowledge’. The upper part of this fob a boasts regal, rope-like, design. This piece weighs 11.1 grams and measures 27.5 x 22 x 29 mm. It has been acid tested and has an 18 karat gold top and a 15k gold frame. 

This fob is a unique and inspired find, as I’ve hardly ever come across a fob of knowledge. : )
