Victorian Pearl Mourning Pin Locket Black Enamel

This Victorian pearl mourning pin with a locket in black enamel weighs 19.2g and measures 35mm long, 51.5mm wide and 10mm deep. The dramatic pairing of an elegant oval-shaped black enamel back drop with a love knot motif comprised of white half-pearls creates a striking example of Victorian mourning jewelry. Most often mourning jewelry was crafted with a visible compartment for a locket of hair or picture of the deceased mounted on the reverse side. This English 1830's seed-pearl and enamel brooch is mounted with a superbly braided locket of brunette hair with what appears to be the original stem and hook closure. This entire locket is framed in beveled English 15ct yellow gold, made only before 1935, with small areas of desirable patina and aged high polish...More
