The three-sided spinning pendant featured in this necklace is a recreation of a Victorian gentleman’s watch fob.
Before wristwatches were invented men kept their timepieces in their pockets attached to a chain that was usually adorned with a decorative fob. The most fashionable type was a spinner fob, like this one, with three rotating sides.
We think it's an ingenious way to display three gorgeous mid-century glass ovals.
This necklace also 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.
