Presenting a high quality Victorian brooch or pendant, dating to the end of the 19th Century. Often these pieces are referred to as mourning jewelry because of the black color and the tiny seed pearl at its center - supposedly representing a tear. I don't know if this piece was only worn for mourning, but it looks very attractive with today's fashions.
The piece can be worn both a brooch, with its c-clasp closure, or a pendant, with a loop at the back through which to thread a chain. It is not hallmarked, but has been carefully acid tested at 10 karat yellow gold.
The piece has a diameter of 1 1/2" and weighs 6.6 grams. It is in fine antique condition.
