A Mourning Brooch with braided hair under glass on a It is amazing the designs they could do with hair so small and intricate. Men use to sit at a small round table and develop this amazing hair designs. Usually from the hair of the deceased and a memory maker. Very seldom do you find them with gray hair as most people died before becoming gray!

Not all of the hair jewelry was for mourning. Some would have one made with their children's hair in it, or Grandmother, mother and child may have one made together for celebration of birth rather than death. Many soldiers went off in the Civil war with Watch Fobs made with their wives or girlfriends hair!

The color of the hair in this one is a chestnut brown. This would be a piece a woman would wear. It is tested at 12K gold filled. I find no mark on the outside. You can see where the frame has been soldered on the back.

This is from round the civil war Era about 1860's. This one is larger than most at 2 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches tall. In very good condition.
