COMMENTS: Mourning jewelry such as lockets, brooches and rings, usually containing a lock of hair and/or photograph, functioned as tangible reminders of the deceased. This elaborate mourning piece has a pin back and hinged baled for versatility in use. It acid tests to 8K standard and has an aged patina. The scrolling frame work has hand engraved details and accents the intricate hairwork beautifully. There are gold wire accents and a single seed pearl. It appears that the wire should be glued down but has come loose.
Polishing is available for an additional $5.
