A common style of Victorian mechanical pencils was a jewel-ended, all-metal retractable pencil with a hexagonal shaft. Some have sliding side rings and would be worn by women on either a chatelaine or on long slide chains.

Some of these may have real gems, especially those with opaque or semi-opaque gems, like this pencil, for example. Pencils like this one were convenient for the times - you could write correspondence to someone and seal the letter with your personalized intaglio seal signature, all with the same piece. 

This beautiful fully-etched pencil features a shield-shaped shaft with a bloodstone seal of a fist penetrating a crown, clutching an ax. Bloodstone is symbolic of courage, motivation, and creative energy, encouraging presence and persistence.
