I love repurposing antique items....why not recycle an antique to be used today although not for it's original purpose?
This is an antique Victorian pocket watch key used to wind a pocketwatch. The key is 14kt gold and was long ago separated from the watch. But it makes a killer pendant! Cool! We have added a 14kt gold 18 inch rope chain to it and I juist love it. We have had and sold several of these. The pocketwatch key necklace is certainly an unusual piece of jewelry!
