This early Victorian watch key fob is as beautiful as it is collectible. Dating to the 1850s, she’s made of gold casing or rolled gold—a form of heavy long-lasting plating that was developed in Birmingham, UK in 1785.

For a dash of brilliant color, you’ll see a rust-red colored piece of glass, backed by foil, set into the seal.

The finish and workmanship of this piece is wonderful. All I’ve done is clean this beauty up and add a jump ring so she’s ready to hang from your favorite short or long necklace.

My pictures give you a few styling ideas. And all the other pieces you see are available in my shop.

Design Details:
*1.75” long
*Center section swivels
*Heavy rolled gold with ornate embellishments
*Rust-red colored glass seal, backed by foil for sparkle
*14k gold fill jump ring

But they do show gentle signs of their age and history. And they deserve to be treated with care and love. Each piece is unique and tells its own story, and unless noted, cannot be altered.

Please reach out with any questions. I’m always happy to hear from you.
