Georgian Garnet & Pearl Mourning Memorial Brooch Braided Hair

Exquisite memorial or mourning brooch from the Georgian period. The brooch is comprised of 14 flat cut garnet stones bordering 26 pearls set in tiny millipoint claws. In the center housed under glass is a beautiful plait of blonde hair. The brooch has a closed back setting of what I believe is sterling silver as it polished up easily and beautifully. Old c clasp on back. Old scratched marking on back reading A1628 M1-1- ( not sure what that means). Brooch measures 2.5 centimeters long by 2 centimeters wide. These pieces look great when worn on a wire collar ( see photo).
