To Protect & Behold - Victorian 9K Gold Shield Fob Pendant. This wonderful pendant is crafted from 9K yellow gold hallmarked 375 for 9K gold, a makers mark FL BS, and a Birmingham assay.  Featuring Victorian styling, exquisite detail and engravings, full hallmarks, and quality gold-work.  This superb pendant features a shield motif in the central portion of the piece, surrounded by a fantastic textured finish and polished frame adorned by fine engravings.  The back of the fob is polished and displays full hallmarks.  The bale on this pendant is solid and substantial, as is the pendant.  The fob has a beautiful patina and buttery yellow colour, which matches the 14K yellow gold fill chain perfectly.  The wonderful Victorian piece is in remarkable condition for its age, truly highly collectible, wearable and quite simply stunning! 

Note: In jewelry decoration a shield represents protection to the wearer.  

A fob is a small ornament attached to a watch chain. Once pocket watches became out of fashion many fobs were removed and worn on a chain.  Fobs are usually beautifully decorated with engravings, chasing, embossing, enamelling, or set jewels.  This is fine example of a high quality fob pendant.
