This gorgeous necklace features an unusual, antique pipe watch key fob charm, ruby heart charm and keshi pearl on a gold plate on sterling silver bead chain.
A fob is an adornment or a seal that hung from the ribbon or chain of a Gentleman's pocket watch. Its purpose was to decorate or add weight to the watch 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 pipe watch fob charm measures 3cm. The chain measures 55cm
