With the amazing variety of hair colors woven together on each side of the big pristine 16K gold & enameled brooch you see here, it must have been for an entire generation of family's lost souls, would you agree? A wonderful and unique hair art mourning icon, it's appeal as large as its size. Both front and back of this swivel brooch are similarly worked with multiple people's hair all perfectly protected under the intact original glass. No flaws to note, an exceptionally fine piece!
