This early Victorian-era 14k gold watch key features a striking citrine stone set in a floral border. The truncated hexagonal bezel repeats on the key’s body and is geometric and minimal for a bold, masculine look. The facets underneath the citrine’s flat surface create a lovely star pattern, and its foil back highlights the stone’s warm yellow hues. The key is still functioning and hangs from a swivel bail, so it can be used to wind a watch while the piece is worn on a chain.
The citrine stone is 1/3 inch in diameter, and the key’s length is one inch long. It weighs 4 grams, with an ample oval bail measuring 7.7mm x 5.25mm.
