VICTORIAN 12K GOLD WATCH CHAIN BRACELET WITH FOUR WATCH FOB CHARMS. Circa 1860. The 7 inch bracelet is made from a watch chain and, although not marked, it tests 12K. The bracelet has four antique watch fobs as charms: 1). A 9K gold swivel fob with bloodstone on one side and sardonyx on the other (measures 1 1/4" by 1"). 2). A 9K gold swivel fob with carnelian on one side and bloodstone on the other (measures 1 1/4" by 3/4". 3). An 18K gold, metal, and bloodstone shield-shaped seal fob (measures 1 1/4" in length. Note: The gold on this fob is mounted over metal and has some wear - see enlargement 4. 4). A 14K gold mounted KUKUI Nut fob (measures 1 1/4" by 1"). The Hawaiian Kukui nut fob would have been considered exotic and rare in Victorian times and therefore highly prized. The three hardstone seal fobs have not been engraved. The Kukui Nut fob has some surface wear but is , overall, in very good condition (see enlargement 8 for surface wear). Weighs 26.70 grams.
