Antique Black Onyx Mourning Pin with Hair Locket on Back

by Jessop's Estate Collection

SKU: 13035
Black onyx mourning pin, circa 1850, is a true rarity featuring a lovely pattern of pearls on the front . This sweet design makes this a wonderful, wearable pin today. Hidden on the reverse is a sentimental token - a lock of hair, woven in a 'Prince-of-Wales' pattern, under a glass pane. Size is approximately 1-1/2" in diameter. Remembrance jewelry was very popular during the Victorian period and the collective style is termed 'Mourning Jewelry'. The items were in black to respect the somber time. At this price, it is an antique lovers dream come true.
