Steeped in beautiful antique detailing this solid 18ct gold watch key would have been used by a Georgian gent to wind his pocket watch but she's now its a unique pendant for you to wear and adore.
Crafted in warm old rosy gold the key has a thick hanging loop on the top that swivels. A perfectly round orb of glowing orange Scottish carnelian decorates the centre set in a pinched collet setting typical of the period. The steel watch winder mechanism is still in the end too, fully functional and beautiful!
We have added a new Italian rose-gold plated sterling silver Belcher chain so this delightful little curio from two centuries past is ready to wear right out of the box. A gorgeous addition to any antique jewellery collection!
MATERIALS: 18ct gold
GEMSTONE: carnelian (Presidium tested) 9.3mm diameter
MEASUREMENTS: 1-1/2" (3.5cm) tall
DATE: circa 1800, Georgian
WEIGHT: weight without the chain is 5.6 grams
HALLMARKS: none, acid tested and verified as 18ct gold
CONDITION: In very good antique condition with light surface wear commensurate with use and age. The swivel moves freely and the carnelian gemstone is perfect with no chips or cracks (the strange little circle visible on the surface is caused by our ring light).
