Antique hand carved rock crystal spinner fob

Here is a perfect gift for someone who has worked and studied hard - a very beautiful antique hand carved rock crystal spinner fob engraved "Virtus in Ardus" meaning "Excellence through hardship".

Made in the 1870's, this wonderful piece was made in 14ct rose gold and set with the hand carved rock crystal that can swivel around. On one side is an exquisitely hand carved image of a Roman gentleman, and on the other side the Latin term "Virtus in Ardus"  and below that a head of a dog followed by the initials "RDM" in a wonderful stylised font.

Measuring 32.6mm across by 49.3mm, this would make such a wonderful gift to wear on a chain or as a special keepsake and always be such a wonderful reminder of all the hard work that someone has spent time on that has finally paid off.
