Bloodstone in deep green coloration appears on one side while a carnelian is securely set in the opposite side. Both stones are in excellent condition and traditional options found in most "spinners."
Spinner portion has a wide thick gold, hallmarked mounting. Bloodstone and carnelian are both in excellent condition with normal wear. Has a bit of wear to the bloodstone. Carnelian has roughness at base. This was done when stone was originally cut.

Victorian jewelry originated in England with the period from 1861-1885 known as The Grand Period. We specialize mostly in jewelry from this era. It is bolder in construction as this time frame saw women’s roles transitioning. A switch from dainty to bold construction was demanded due to women becoming more prevalent in business and demanding the right to vote. This move to a bolder look and increased demand was also attributed to the middle class having more access to higher paying jobs and being able to emulate the wealthy. Jewelry was used as a sign of a woman’s wealth and place in society; thus, the more jewelry a woman wore, the wealthier she appeared.
9kt gold became all the rage during this time as it was more affordable for the upper middle class, and it allowed them to denote their rising status in society. The vast majority of gold jewelry found during this period is of this karat content. Earrings, bangles, and chains were now being worn during the day and were no longer reserved for evening. Women of this period were no different than women today; each enjoyed her own style and her pieces were special and significant to her. Her personality emanated from her jewelry.Dimensions:
