This antique sterling silver spinning fob pendant is a lovely example of Victorian jewellery, and is quite unusual in that it's an oval shape.
Bearing good clear English hallmarks for 1887 and beautifully hand-crafted the silver stirrup shaped setting features fancy twisted chain detailing and a decorative built in bale.
Boasting handsome Scottish gemstones one side of the fob is set with a red-flecked deep forest green slab of Bloodstone, the other a slice of Carnelian in a warm mulled spice colour.
The spinning mechanism works perfectly so you can spin away to your hearts content. Gorgeous piece, an absolute classic and a handsome unisex addition to any antique jewellery collection!
