This pretty necklace features an antique pocket watch key with heavily gold plated garnet heart and pearl drops on a gold fill adjustable chain.
Pocket watches were first made in the 16th century and required a key to keep them running, both to set the time and wind the watch. Some types of watch keys were very ornate and others very simple metal keys. The more ornate ones were intended to be worn on a watch chain or chatelaine and displayed publicly. By the mid 1940's wrist watches had generally replaced pocket watches.
The pocket watch key measures 3.3cm. The longest length of the chain measures 55cm but it can be easily adjusted to make smaller.
