I fell in love with this piece the first time I saw it. It is very unusual in design. It is crafted of unmarked but tested 9 carat gold, with thirteen cabochon garnets in varying size.s The piece is completed with white coral, and this is a fully documented presentation piece. There is a lock of hair, under glass in the back and the words "Presented by Charlotte Gosling to Mary C. Smith, March 23, 1847. I imagine this was a birthday gift from one young lady to a dear friend. This piece is in excellent condition. It measures 6 inches long and 1 and 1/4 inches wide at the widest point. It weighs 10.6 grams. This is a lovely sentimental piece and the pieces of white coral make it even more special.
