Often a fob held a pocket watch which was swung from a chain, attached to the vest pocket on the opposite side of the vest. These fob chains often had small pendants, as seals, and these pendants themselves became known as fobs! Fobs have since often been used as bold and stunning pendants on your favorite chain.
