Oddfellows Maltese Cross Watch Fob Necklace with Onyx
Black Knight Onyx Necklace from the ANTIQUITY Collection, by Compass Rose Design Jewelry.
Made with an antique watch fob from the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a charitable fraternal organization founded in 1819. A true treasure, the top of the fob features a swiveling knight's helmet. The escutcheon shield on the front of the fob has the initials - F-L-T for friendship, love and truth. I used a strong vintage ladies watch chain and an original gold-fill pocket watch clasp on this necklace for heirloom quality.
"The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF), also known as the Three Link Fraternity, is a global altruistic and benevolent fraternal organization derived from the similar British Oddfellows service organizations which came into being during the 18th century, at a time when altruistic and charitable acts were far less common."
