There are so very many things to love about this Fob Seal.
Crafted of 18k yellow gold, everything is perfectly in balance, from the beautifully decorative ring on which to attach it to a chain to the subtly embellished bars that make up the body of the piece. The chalcedony seal is set into a grooved bezel of gold which is connected to the bars by decorative balls. It is beautiful and decorative from all angles, but my favorite part of this piece is the seal itself. Engraved with a bow-topped shield, the family crest is engraved within this larger shield, it is a standing lion holding a shield on which are engraved 3 birds and 3 stars. Circa Mid 1800s.
