Gold-Filled Trilogy Spinner Fob Featuring Bloodstone, Sardonyx, and White Agate *include green ribbon*
During the mid to late Victorian period, gold-filled jewelry was very common and was manufactured in large numbers. The scarcity of gold and the rise of commodities through the industrial revolution drove this demand. These pieces are so durable that the gold can last anywhere from 5 to 30 years depending on the wear.
Watch fobs go back as far as the first pocket watches, dating to the Victorian era. The purpose of a watch fob was to make the pocket watch more accessible, giving the user something to grab on to when pulling a pocket watch out of a vest or pants pocket. This trilogy spinning fob features bloodstone (representing birth and life), sardonyx (associated with courage and clarity), and white agate (representing peace and protection).
