Mid 19th Century Woven Hair & 14K Gold Mourning Bracelet

Mourning jewelry was made to memorialize a friend or family member; these were very popular in the US & England around the Civil War period. This mourning bracelet is made from weaving hair into a tube design, the 3 tubes are then inserted into 14K gold ends with a catch mechanism. The gold was acid tested and is 14 K. It is not marked except for a name: "Janet Pidge." Janet was probably the deceased. Some of the hair shows wear on the bottom, which does not distract. It is 8 inches long.
