It’s almost time for fall fashions. In these parts, that means watch fobs: these beautifully ornate pieces are taking center stage this season. You don’t have a pocket watch? No problem! Watch fobs are finding new life as pendants: they’re particularly stunning when paired with lush-colored sweaters.
What makes a great watch fob? For many people, it’s the ornate detailing. On this Rearing Horse Fob we see a majestic rearing horse. Look closely: you can see the magnificent muscleature, the flowing mane. Behind him, a heraldic shield and ornate scrollwork add romantic flair.
This design was originally a Victorian watch fob, but has found new life as a sterling silver pendant. At just over 1 inch wide and 1.5 inches long, the pendant is a good size. The blank back is ideal for engraving. Engraving can make a piece of jewelry even more meaningful: something to keep in mind when you’re selecting a gift for your favorite horse lover!
This pendant is also available in white and yellow gold.
Another watch fob we really like is this stunning antique mother of pearl horse head fob. Mother of pearl is a beautiful creamy white surface harvested from the inside of seashells. Here, the shell has been carved into a lovely three dimensional rendering of a horse’s head. The bridle and reins are exquisitely detailed. This piece is elegant and distinctive; you can wear it anywhere.
If you don’t have any watch fobs in your horse jewelry collection, this fall is the ideal time to remedy the situation. The fashion trends are for classic pieces paired with highly detailed accessories. The style and sophistication of watch fobs will work perfectly! Watch fobs work well as pendants. Check vintage horse jewelry collections and vendors of estate horse jewelry: you might find some real treasures lingering neglected that will really shine as pendants!
