If you love watch keys as much as I do, then take a closer look at this very rare gold-cased Georgian beauty from the early 1800s.

Originally these keys were made to wind up pocket watches or small ornamental clocks. They were worn traditionally on a pocket watch chain or chatelaine attached to a waist coat or dress.

This gorgeous example is carved with intricate scrollwork on all sides. In some instances, there was a bloodstone or carnelian inset, but I believe this beauty was designed without.

The key is in excellent condition--entirely gold cased from top to key shaft. The carved metal loop at the top rotates, so it can be easily worn as a charm on a chain, or attached to a large clasp.

Style Tips:
I suggest wearing this watch key on a shorter vintage or modern chain, inside a v-neck top or collared shirt. To keep it chic and easy, mix it up with other chains, metals and eras. Take a look at my pictures for reference.

Design Details:
* 1.25 inches long
* Gold cased
* Open center
* Rotating carved loop
