Victorian Mourning Cross Pendant 14 Karat Gold Rose Color

Mourning jewelry was popular during the Victorian era and very often contained a memento of a loved one who had passed away. It was usually a lock of hair from the deceased. In this case, that lock of hair was carefully braided around a hollow rounded metal cross shape and the ends were capped off in 585 Fineness, 14 Karat Gold rose color. The end caps have a delightful concave dish-like shape to them (very nice little detail!). This piece is in perfect condition, no frays. It measures 1 3/4 inches long by 1 inch wide, and 5mm thick. Circa 1860s. The gold has been acid tested for its purity. Mourning jewelry containing hair is delicate and should not be worn while swimming.
