Antique English Mourning Pin Victorian Black Enamel Rose-cut Diamond

This antique English mourning pin with Victorian black enamel and rose-cut diamonds weighs 37g and measures 2" long, 2.5" wide and 18mm deep. The dramatic pairing of an elegant oval-shaped black enamel back drop with a sprig of 14k yellow gold florets studded with rose-cut diamonds 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 mid 1800's aged and lovingly worn enamel brooch is mounted with a superbly braided locket of brunette hair with what appears to be the engraved message 'In Memory of Ann Bean, ob 26 June 1853 Age 53. Though this pin does exhibit signs of wear, at nearly 155 years old it's understandably so...More
