Description
Brand: "Handmade" Metal: Genuine Alaskan Gold Nugget
Jewelry Type: Gold & Quartz Watch Fob Material: Rose Gold


This is a very rare watch fob that I really don't have any information about other than it was my Great Great Uncle's. I believe "RAM" is abbreviated for the "Royal Arch Masonry". There is a Free Mason symbol on one side of the fob as well. This piece is completely encased in high quality rose gold and the stone that is set within the fob has many different colors and some nice gold veins. It could be a rock from Alaska, because my Great Great Uncle was the first elected Mayor of Nome during the Gold Rush. I believe this piece is much earlier than the late 1800's and is more than likely from the mid 1800's. If anyone has any information about this fob, please don't hesitate to contact me. This item is very heavy and has quite a bit of gold. Please don't purchase this item to scrap or melt the item, because this belongs in a museum. Please check out my other great auctions. Thanks
