A small bouquet forget-me-not flowers made of pearls decorates the face of this deep blue enamel brooch mid 19th century brooch. Within each flower is a rose cut diamond, and along the frame of the brooch are 37 additional pearls. This Victorian locket once held a secret treasure, likely serving as mourning jewelry for a lost loved one, the back has a secret compartment that has lost it's cover (probably originally glass). The pearls were meant to represent tears and in the locket there may have been a lock of hair or a fabric cutting from the loved one's garment. It's larger than you would expect and the delicate craftsmanship from the 12K gold to the placement of each pearl and diamond is exquisite!
