The three-sided spinning pendant featured in this necklace is a recreation of a Victorian gentleman’s watch fob. Most pocket watches hung from a chain adorned with a decorative fob. A fob added weight to the chain which made it easier to withdraw the watch from a pocket. However, the fobs, because they were visible, were also decorative and fashionable.
The most fashionable of all was a spinner fob which had two or three sides, which turned so the owner could choose which decorative element to show off. In this necklace, the fob, which is made with a vintage green opal glass cabochon handmade in mid-century Czechoslovakia, hangs from the chain vertically while on an actual watch fob it would have spun horizontally from a curved bar.
This necklace features a sliding clasp that enables you to adjust its length to suit any neckline. You can wear it as a choker, as a long pendant, or anywhere in between.
