Near the end of the 1870s, fashion jewelry was reduced to very simplistic designs, and most women wore very little, and sometimes no jewelry at all. By the 1880’s the rejection of the Victorian style of jewelry and the artistic inspiration of French artist, René Lalique, directly led to the flavorful and imaginative Art Nouveau movement.

The very first pocket watches, since their creation in the 16th century, up until the third quarter of the 19th century, had key-wind and key-set movements. A watch key was necessary to wind the watch and to set the time.

This special watch key features a white agate on one side and a sardonyx on the other. The white color of agate gemstone is associated with peace, calmness, purity, and protection. On the other hand, carnelian symbolizes bold energy, warmth, and joy that lingers as much as it empowers and stimulates.
