A Victorian-era spinner fob, made in 15k rose gold and set with a soulful, highly unusual man in the moon cameo on one side, and detailed with a fine engraved pattern on the other. This oval centerpiece is mounted inside a curved bracket or frame that is crowned with a knot motif. The spinner function crisply snaps the centerpiece into place when the fob is flipped and this mechanism is in perfect condition. This fob hangs from a short, ornate length of chain. The subject matter of the natural sardonyx cameo is rare, and the quality of the carving is exceptional. Engraved details encircling the cameo seem to indicate the soft light he emits. We love this moon man's sweet, peaceful expression and his magnificent beard!

Notes

There is a small area of loss in the thin gold bezel; this does not effect the stability of the piece and is only noticeable upon close inspection (we missed it on the first pass). Chain is not included. Please contact us if you'd like to purchase a chain.
