Jewelry throughout the Georgian period was eclectic, refined, and ornate. Georgian jewelry, much like its society at the time, varied greatly throughout the reigns of different king Georges.
The style of jewelry throughout this time period was very much centered around delicate cannetille openwork and repoussé, with an emphasis on the creation of ornate pieces which were for the most part meticulously crafted by hand! The Georgians loved to impress, and they also loved to outwardly display extravagance.
Featuring an intaglio bloodstone (the stone of motivation and creative energy) with a carved horse rearing while steadying a large anchor, inset into a crenelated brick structure, this special fob is likely Scottish in origin.
