This is a very special 10k -12k gold mourning pin. Not only is it a fine representation of the period and style, it is in superior condition.
The pin has a large gold mounting that is lined with black onyx that is streamlined and ultra feminine. Above this, is a band of finely etched gold that is breath taking. The light brown – blond hair is encased in the original beveled glass cover. It tests a strong 10k – 12k.
The pin is 1 1/4″” by 1 3/4” wide. Note the longer pin extension that signifies this is an earlier piece. It is in excellent vintage condition and guaranteed to be Victorian.
