Description

This is an exceptional and substantial antique 14k yellow gold Masonic tri-fold fob or pendant featuring a .25 carat diamond on one side, accent diamonds and rubies on the other side, and four colors of vitreous enamel used throughout. The front gold eagle with center diamond and words Spes Mea in Deo Est, (which translates to "my hope is in God"), lifts and is engraved with Williamsport Consist'y S.P.R.S. Jan. 24th, 1917. Opposite the eagle is a 16th degree Prince of Jerusalem symbol in the center of an elaborate red, black, and white enamel design. On the back of that side is an 18th degree Rose Croix symbol design which includes a pelican pecking her breast to feed her babies with the text, Adoniram Council No. 26 R. & S.M. Jan. 14 - 1918. Red, blue, and black enamel are incorporated into the design. Facing that side is another enamel panel with center Keystone design and the owner's name along with the following, Ent. Oct. 9 - 1914, Mkd. Sep. 13 - 1917, Lycoming R.A.C. No. 222, Conrad B. Day Lodge No. 645. Blue, white, and black enamel are used on this panel. On the back is the Knights Templar's blood-red passion cross made of prong set rubies and crown with prong set diamonds. All four colors of enamel are incorporated in this intricate and very complex design. The text reads In Hoc Signo Vinces, (which translates to "in this sign you will conquer"), together with Baldwin II Commy No. 22 K.T. Dec. 18 - 1917.

I come from a Masonic background with parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, and cousins having been involved in the many Masonic organizations. The symbolism, detail, and workmanship incorporated into this fob are truly incredible. The enamel work is intricate, elaborate, and absolutely beautiful. The fob tells the story of the original owner's Masonic journey and achievement of degrees through a stunning piece of antique jewelry that is in extraordinary condition. It is a very special piece!

MEASUREMENTS / SIZE - Fob: 1 5/8" north to south by 1" west to east; Diamonds: Single diamond measures 4 mm in diameter, which is equivalent to .25 carat; five accent diamonds each measure approx. 2 mm in diameter; Rubies: Nine accent rubies each measure approx. 2 mm in diameter; Weight: 27.5 grams

METAL / COMPONENTS - 14k gold (marked, tested), one .25 carat diamond, five accent diamonds, nine accent rubies

MAKER'S MARK / HALLMARK / HISTORY - Marked 14K on the back of the eagle at the base

CONDITION - Excellent antique condition. The single diamond is secure in its setting, eye clean, very sparkly, and has no cracks, chips, damage or issue. The five accent diamonds and nine accent rubies are all securely prong set with no cracks or chips, and no damaged or missing prongs. The enamel work is in exceptional condition for a piece of this age with the only loss we see due to natural wear on the banner wording below the eagle, and we would judge that to be minimal. We have not cleaned or polished this piece. This fob would make a gorgeous necklace pendant. It is a unique and outstanding example of antique Masonic jewelry! Please use the zoom feature to enlarge the photos and really see the detail. I would be happy to send additional pictures!

Additional policies

RING SIZING
We do not provide ring sizing services. There are many variables such as design of the gemstone(s) mounting and the thickness of a band which make each ring's fit individual to the wearer. We believe that the most accurate fit can be obtained by having a customer's reputable local jeweler size their ring after receiving their purchase.

GEMSTONE SIZE AND WEIGHT
The gemstones and diamonds in all of our pieces are already set as they are antiques or vintage. Many of the stones are european or mine cut with different measurement parameters than contemporary standards. Without removing the stones from their settings, we are only able to estimate their sizes and weights. We provide the measurements that we are able to take providing you with as much information as possible to envision the proportions and design of the stones and the piece.

STANDARDS
All of our antique and vintage items are previously owned and have been used and worn. We lightly polish silver jewelry, inspect it with a jeweler's loupe, and test it for accuracy of marks or stamps. We use electronic as well as acid testing for gold and metals, and we test diamonds and gemstones for authenticity. We work with a professional jeweler who consults for Antiques Roadshow. We utilize all resources available in the research and identification of a piece, and we only sell pieces that have been determined to be wearable and in serviceable condition. We provide the most accurate description possible and list any issues that we are aware of with a piece.
