Victorian Large Heavy 9ct Gold Natural Citrine Spinner Fob Pendant
A Large antique Victorian (Circa 1860 – 1900) 9 Carat Bonded Gold Natural Citrine Spinning Fob Pendant. Beautiful and substantial antique gold and natural citrine spinning fob pendant with hand engraved detailing to the bale and bar attachment. The citrine is natural (not simulated) as is evident by the faint feather inclusion found with inspection near side of the stone. This is a very heavy and large pendant and would work well with a large long belcher chain or knotted leather necklace. The engraving to the gold would have been done by “eye and hand” just like any piece of jewellery from the Victorian era and the same applies to the citrine stone which would also have been cut by hand. A stunning high quality antique heirloom piece to pass down to your own generation. Is an adornment or a seal that originally hung from the ribbon or chain of a pocket watch in the Victorian era. Its purpose is to decorate or add weight to the watch chain itself, making it easier for the watch to be withdrawn from a pocket. Has two or more sides, which can be turned or swivelled within a moveable bracket. The pendant measures approx 3.7 cm x 3.5 cm (including the bail). Weighs 32.62 Grams. Citrine is a birthstone for November. Its also recognised as the gem that commemorates the thirteenth anniversary. The finest citrine colour is a saturated yellow to reddish orange free of brownish tints. Citrine has been popular for thousands of years and used to be revered for its rarity, though that has changed with time. The ancient Romans used it for beautiful jewellery and intaglio work. It was also very popular for jewellery in the 19th century. During the Art Deco period between World Wars I and II, large citrine’s were set in many prized pieces, including the massive and elaborate Art Deco inspired jewellery pieces made for big Hollywood stars such as Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford. Gems from the Victorian era have surfaced, and its not hard to imagine why citrine was treasured even in earlier times. Citrine is rare in nature. In the days before modern gemmology, its tawny colour caused it to be confused with topaz. Excellent condition to the gold engraving especially for an antique piece. Whilst the gold is bonded over another metal, it is a very thick layer of gold with almost none of the under metal showing through. The screws and inside the bale are made from what I believe to be cast iron. The citrine has a surface chip where the screw was originally fixed and this is partially hidden under the gold attachment bar depending on where the stone is resting when worn. The stones fixture is not too loose or too rigid, it only moves when manipulated manually. There are minor facet abrasions to the citrine which are only visible under magnification.
