This is a beautiful Victorian Fleur de Lis watch fob. The french word Fleur de Lis translates to "the flower of the Lily" which dates back to Clovis the first king of the Franks and was primarily used as a religious symbol which than transformed to many other symbols in many other cultures and countries. It is quite beautiful and regal.
This piece is a watch fob but is multi functional. It can be worn as a pendant or pinned as a brooch. It has a latched loop so that you can add a drop to it when worn as a brooch. I added my beloved grandmother's wedding band below it for a visual.
Please inquire about chain options, chain sold separately.
Measurements: 23.1 x 18 mm
Metal: 19k pink gold
Markings: XK hallmark
Weight: 2.2 grams
Condition Rating: 9 (in original condition, some patina, excellent condition)

Victorian Fleur De Lis Pendant and Brooch in 9k Pink Gold
Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
