Pierre Swivel Key Pendant


This one-of-a-kind necklace is composed of:

  • A Victorian, gold filled pocket watch clasp and winding key from the late 1800s. The pocket watch winding key swivels on a single spoke and features oval bloodstones on each side with hand tooled and embossed floral details encompassing the key. This pocket watch winding key was sourced and found in England.

  • This necklace measures a standard 18” on a 14k gold filled chain. The pendant drops an additional 1.5” from the chain.


The very first pocket watches, since their creation in the 16th century and up until the third quarter of the 19th century, had key-wind and key-set movements. A watch key was necessary to wind the watch to keep and set the time. For convenience, these keys were often attached to a man's pocket watch chain to have close by in order to keep proper and correct time. And, in true Victorian fashion, these little functional pieces were often elaborately adorned with gemstones, engravings, or meaningful sentiments. Winding keys became less relevant at the onset of the Industrial Revolution when clock construction became more self-reliant and didn't constantly require manual maintenance.
