Victorian and Georgian fobs , all intricately engraved, are connected to a 15ct bracelet making an original, antique charm bracelet. The charms are large, strong and dramatic. Each is different from the other I had a fob charm bracelet two years ago and hoped ever since to find another. These bracelets are unique and fun to wear and many requests came in the first time around. All but one of these fobs has a carnelian base, two of which have engraved intaglios of classical men with helmets in profile. One fob has a base of bloodstone. All but one of the fobs is Victorian with repousse engraving. All are three dimensional with all around design. Each is over an inch in length with the largest, the Georgian, being 2 inches long. One, the central geometric fob with black enamel is Georgian, 19th century. Enjoy each enlargement to see the detailing of every fob. One forms a helmeted man kneeling and playing a horn. The others are designed with various symmetrical curves and bridges. The Georgian fob resembles the architecture of the Eiffel Tower. Its enamel design is beautiful. The bracelet has alternating engraved and smooth links. The clasp is Victorian. 7 1/2 inches in length. Excellent condition. From the Glorious Antique Jewelry Collection

Banded agate is a constant reminder of the wonder of nature, a force to which the Victorians gave much attention and sentiment. In this pair of chandelier earrings, a stone cutter took parts of the agate that had similar patterns then sculpted and formed beautiful, smooth amphora drops that are absolutely thrilling. The colors, strong and magnificent gleam, accented here and there by lines and swirls of white. The gold is 15kt. No, they are not heavy. The condition is perfect.

Sterling silver sets and separates one wiggly agate from the other in this, one of the most rare forms in Scottish Agate jewelry. The snake, completely original, created c. 1860 was made by the jeweler. first by designing the silver in its serpentine form. Chiseling the agates was no simple feat as they are sculpted to curve and fit within their silver boundaries. The stones are rich with natural color. I am especially fond of the light colored agate at the head of the snake. Scottish agate jewelry has a long history, first worn hundreds of years ago to identity the various clans. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert so admired Scottish tradition that they steeped themselves in it dressing in Scottish clothing when at their castle in Balmoral. Five grand inches in length, this extraordinary specimen of Scottish jewelry history will excite collectors of antique agate and those who love the drama of an unusual antique brooch. Perfect condition. From the Glorious Antique Jewelry Collection.

Set in 14kt gold, the agates were cut and set with a master's hand. Carved out of and polished from larger stones, the jeweler took the time to reach artistic heights by matching each stone for color, each size and every glow. The usual brown and black agate is here more orange and black with white. I kept returning to look at it, captivated by this simple form so beautifully embellished. A wondrous piece of jewelry for the religious or all interested in jewelry history of the ages. Perfect Condition. From the Glorious Jewelry Collection

Smooth shining bells, the symbol of friendship and peace are made from Jet from the city of Whitby England. They will move as you do but will not put weight on your ears or cause ringing to disconcert you. The shepherd hook ear wires are 15kt gold. The town of Whitby was the primary source of jet jewelry that became a court necessity when Prince Albert died unexpectedly. Queen Victoria would allow no color jewelry other than black in her presence.

One of the many design characteristics in 1870 Great Britain was whimsy and humor, both of which are present in these belted banded agate earrings. A buckle on the ears or wrist, a corset on a bracelet, bangles that appear to be shirt cuffs with ruffles, zippers and straps as elements of design on lockets, birds nests hanging from earrings are but a few examples of daytime jewelry, both fun and serious, that represented a design of the era. The fascination and appreciation of nature was strong at this time. Here, the careful cut, and polish of banded agate honors that natural bent. The agate stone with black, brown and white coloration was cut shaped into orbs masterfully making the colors equal in each. Gold ear wires were placed on straps of gilt metal, the process now known as vermeil. The top layer of the metal is gold. The earrings are strong, original and unique in the world of design today. Excellent condition. 1 1/2 inches in length. English origin.

A delight in 18kt gold is the oh so popular Victorian serpent motif. I have seen women wear three on one hand!. Serpent rings were gifted for engagement and friendship. Here is a cheerful example as the serpent appears to be smiling. Why not, she ( my choice of gender) is a symbol of eternal bond and affection. This ring is particularly comfortable and graceful as the coils are spaced apart. You will find that your eyes travel to your finger in admiration. Size 6. Immaculate condition

The bloodstone spinning section of this gold engraved fob is sprinkled with red spots and is bevelled creating a higher center. This fob is handsome. Outstanding is more accurate as the repousee engraving on the gold and the proportion of the whole is beautiful indeed. The puffy engraving covers the gold other than the top suspension ring. Puffiness is accomplished by pushing the gold into design from the back. Multiple uses for a fob today are wearing one on a watch chain, suspending it on a chain creating a pendant, or attaching it to a charm bracelet. The condition is superb. English c. 1860-70

The fine quality of the above natural pearl and banded agate locket made me stop in my tracks when I glanced in a London shop window. The border glows with the luster of the pearls in their tiara settings of high carat gold. A large convex natural agate is set center as if on a pedestal. Victorians were passionate about nature and the use of natural materials is an example of that passion. They had the knack of cutting the banded stones in the way that made them unique jewels. The locket back calls for your keepsake making this pendant your personal treasure. The chain, offered separately, has been sold. Locket in Perfect Original Condition

Prisms of pique work were carefully incised with flower forms that then were filled with silver and gold. This is delicate work that was performed by artists in the latter quarter of the 19th century, c. 1870 most often in France or Russia. This art form was done for a short period of the Victorian era and as there is no fine reproduction today, These are medium length earrings, wearable and very light in weight. The condition is perfect.

Visually striking on the finger, this fine cameo is set in 18kt gold bezel with a 9kt shank. Psyche is finely carved from the white of the onyx and rises from the black background. This detailed miniature work was a talent of Italian jewelers. It amazes me how the carving is so delicate as to create hair on the head of a figure or drapes in clothing while bringing out one color only from the stone. Dating to 1870-80. Origin Italy.
