It seems likely (but not definite) that these hawks represent the Paton family of Scotland. The Paton crest is "a sparrow-hawk, perched, ppr. [proper]" and their motto is "Virtus laudanda" "Virtue is praiseworthy"." These particular birds were useful, too - one holds a watch-winding key, and the other, a sardonyx wax seal.
14k gold (tests), sardonyx, new 14k gold chain
1 1/8" length of both seal and watch key including their bales, 18" chain
