This stunningly beautiful, antique brooch is 14K yellow gold, set with a glazed compartment which contains a braided portion of honey-colored hair. The oval glass is beveled on the edge and is bezel-set within a 1 1/2 inches long, and 1 inch wide intricately decorated gold brooch. It is unmarked but has been tested as 14 Karat gold. The back is fitted with a tube-hinged pin, and a "C" clasp. There is no maker's name, and there are no engravings or monograms. The condition is excellent. There are no dents, warps, breaks, cracks, or other problems. We estimate that this item was made between 1830 and 1850. This item weighs .2 ounce.
