ABOUT THESE ACCESSORIES

Reminiscent of the Prince of Wales ostrich feather crest, this distinctively designed ornamental fob culminates in a white cushion-cut chalcedony hand engraved with a griffin's head (sporting a crown collar) beneath the Latin legend, "Mihi Gloria Fides," which translates "to the glory of faith, honesty, or loyalty." Since griffins have been considered the guardians of treasures and priceless possessions, you'll want to wear this fascinating jewel often. Circa 1885. 1 3/16 inches high. Chain shown is not included.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
