A very unusual Georgian period, 14K Gold framed Hair Locket Pendant / Hair Locket Brooch which was originally a large Hair Locket Clasp with connections at both ends (the bale pulls out and its function as a Clasp revealed. At the opposite position, the receiving channel for another clasp remains. On the face of Crystal is an unusual, very interesting fancy script monogram. Too elaborate to make out the letters. Hair shows below the Crystal. The Antique Georgian Hair Pendant / Hair Brooch / Hair Clasp is diamond/oval shaped and is a good size, measuring 13/16" x 2". Slight nick to the Crystal at one end. Would look wonderful as a Pendant worn on the Chain and can be worn as Brooch, which would also be just as lovely. If worn as a Brooch, the removable bale would be pulled out and set aside. To wear as a Pendant, the bale would stay inserted as shown in the photographs. Assayed to determine the piece is 14K Gold. Is a terrific piece.....shows well in the photos and even prettier and more interesting in person. Note bright and dark areas are reflections of the room while being photographed. Photographs taken with and without a camera flash.
