Antique 9ct Rose Gold Nephrite Jade Fob/Charm Circa 1905

Handcrafted from 9ct rose gold and Nephrite Jade sometimes also called Greenstone.

With a chased 9ct cap with Art Nouveau style floral motifs this is a particularly pretty example.

Styled as a **Pounamu, in traditional toki (adze) shape which represents strength and courage,  and capped with hand engraved 9ct gold measuring a lovely 3.2cm excluding jump ring and 1.2cm at its widest point.

These beautiful antique fob/charms work beautifully on most chains, and look especially great on Albertina watch chains.

History of Pounamu

Pounamu or greenstone are terms for several types of hard and durable stone found in southern New Zealand. They are highly valued in New Zealand, and carvings made from pounamu play an important role in Māori culture. Geologically, pounamu are usually nephrite jade, bowenite, or serpentinite.
