George III bloodstone gold fob, circa 1800


This superb fob would make a fantastic pendant or addition to a gentleman’s pocket watch chain.

It is made from yellow gold (unmarked but mostly likely to be 9ct or 15ct) and is set to the centre with a rectangular bloodstone matrix. Bloodstone shows a fantastic array of red speckles against a dark green ground.

The matrix is engraved with the word ‘Neritas’, possibly derived from the Greek mythological name Neritus.
