About Details

This exquisite tiny fob dates to the mid Victorian period. The 10k gold case and split ring are chased in an ornate foliate design. At the base of the fob is a shield-shaped citrine intaglio featuring the word "never" etched above a forget me not flower. The clever message in the form of a rebus is meant to be read as "never forget me". (In reverse, of course, this was fob designed to be impressed in hot wax to form a seal on correspondence). Hangs from a new 16" 14k yellow gold chain.
