Hair Braided and 14 K Rose Gold Cross Pendant, Victorian Mourning Jewelry, 1" Wide, 1 3/4" Long
$95.00

Religious mourning jewelry was popular during the Victorian era and very often contained a memento of a loved one who had passed away.   It was usually a lock of hair from the deceased.   In this case, that lock of hair was carefully braided around a hollow rounded metal cross shape and the ends were capped off in 14 K rose gold.   The end caps are engraved and have a concave disc shape.

This piece is in good condition, no frays.   It measures 1 3/4 inches long by 1 inch wide and 5 mm thick.   The gold has been acid tested for its purity.    Mourning jewelry containing hair is delicate and should not be submerged in water or any other fluid.
