19th century pink gold mourning brooch that tests as 9kt rose gold.
This is a cute little mourning brooch.
If you look at the back of the brooch you can see that it is made out of one piece of gold. This encases the lovely mixed cut garnets, the two oval garnets are approx. 4.5mm x 3.5mm. The rest are about 3mm round but they vary in size slightly. There are 12 garnets. The centrepiece has woven hair of a loved one under a glass panel. The panel is surrounded in seed pearls. Seed pearls represented tears (there is one damaged one but you have to look closely). The pin has been replaced.
Hair was a way to show your connection to someone who had died.
Brooch is about 25mm x 19mm but has a lot of details within.
Please look at all photos
