ANTIQUE GEORGIAN 18CT GOLD CITRINE SEAL AND WATCH KEYS BEE SYMBOL CIRCA 1800
This beautiful set of antique Georgian 18ct Yellow Gold watch keys come with a beautiful seal fob engraved with the form of a bee, and the accompanying word “INDUSTRY”, carved into its honey-coloured Citrine.
Beautiful twisting metalwork adorns each of the keys, and each has its own special character, with loops or swirls of gold. The largest of the keys is set on either side with red Carnelian on one side, and with Bloodstone on the other.
Bloodstone is a type of deep green jasper with flecks of red laced throughout, giving the impression of flecks of blood on a dark background.
These intricate keys and their fob are joined with a sturdy rose gold C catch.
They are a beautiful set of historic tools crafted by the skilful jewellers of the Georgian age, and a beautiful piece to be treasured.
