This is one of two rather unusual pendants that I purchased on my last buying trip to England. This is a pendant, 15 ct gold, which has a type of bezel which magnifies the photo inside. It has a natural pearl surround, and there is a lock of hair on the back. Both front and back could carry the photo or a lock of hair of a loved one. The pendant is 2/3 an inch in diameter, and in excellent condition. It is circa 1870. Please excuse the image of a tree branch in the glass!
