Dating to the late Victorian to early Edwardian era circa 1900 and crafted in 15ct rose gold. Designed as a fob watch charm this piece would originally have adorned a gentleman’s gold watch chain but today these antique pieces make fabulous pendants.
Tigers eye is a chatoyant member of quartz and this piece displays a stunning chatoyant silky wavy shimmer across both the front and back of the stone.
Capped in 15ct gold which is finely engraved and etched to front and verso and to the centre is a shield shaped band bearing initials that are almost too faint to read now.
Measuring a full 5cm drop with the top ring this impressive piece looks superb on any chain.
4.1cm x 1.4cm at widest point
Drop with top ring 5cm
Unidentifiable makers mark - almost definitely Australian
Very very good antique condition. Minor marks to shield, insignificant. Slight roughness to very end of tiger eye, not chipped, just rough, also insignificant given the age of this piece. Stunningly pretty.
