Dating to the early 19th Century, this pin or pendant is a beauty. It is made of 9 karat (tested) pink gold and contains garnets and natural seed pearls.
The center of the piece has a glass covered rectangular compartment containing braided blond hair. It is surrounded by the seed pearls and then surrounded by ten flat topped garnets in a deep red color.
The piece measures 1" by 3/4". It weighs 3.5 grams. It has a replaced pin back with a safety lock. There is also a loop to use as a pendant. This must have been added at a later date, but makes the piece that much more versatile. It is in wonderful antique condition.
