14 Karat Yellow Gold Victorian Hair Brooch, Dated 1856



In stock



Not only is this piece extremely old it is very rare! The majority of pieces during this time period are mourning jewelry- remembering someone that has passed. This is a celebratory brooch, evidenced by the white background and the engraving on the back. The engraving reads “A memorial of affection presented to M A Capel by her seven children on the twenty-fifth anniversary of her marriage June 9th, 1856.” There are “7” locks of hair presented in a floral form with small seed pearls and gold accents. The brooch is in exceptional condition for being almost 170 years old!
