This lovely pendant is made from gold fill wire, one antique pocket watch balance, two stainless steel cogs, a gear, plate and spiral flywheel, adorned with one 3mm round cut AA quality genuine green tourmaline gem.
The balance (the proper term is “balance cock” but I get a lot of notes complaining that I have a spelling error, so I usually leave the second part out!) is the part of the pocket watch that allowed you to set the speed of the timepiece- notice the “S” and “F” engraved here. This indicated slower or faster, and there was a hand mounted in the middle that you could push to one side or the other to set the speed. Every watch is different, the springs are different strengths, gears different sizes, and so, the adjustment of the watch is original to its pieces.
