This heavy and substantial antique gold seal fob is a real versatile beauty.

Made from 9ct yellow gold, Victorian era, it has an elaborate scrolling detailing around the top and a chunky beaded rim.

The base is set with a lush rich Carnelian matrix, carved to depict an image of Hermes, Messenger of the gods, a befitting choice for a seal, perhaps with a hidden meaning as Hermes was also known as fast, sharp and a trickster.

This beautiful antique seal has a 9ct gold jump ring attached so is ready to be hung from your favourite chain necklace or Albert chain, it could also be used as a very large bracelet charm.
