Gold, November–December 2019: Fobs, Hoop Earrings, and More

TREND GAME What About Fob? In the Victorian era, men wore fobs—decorative metal pieces that sometimes doubled as seals and were often tipped with gems such as carnelian and onyx—as ornamental counterweights for their pocket watches. In recent ­seasons, a handful of contemporary fine jewelry designers have reinterpreted fobs and chains as pendant necklaces that heavily reference their Victorian inspirations. The vibe (and craftsmanship) of these new fobs may be Old World. But when hanging around a neck, the look feels fresh, and even a little daring.
