Encased in the centre of this beauty is a section of woven blonde hair, which has been preserved impeccably over its lifetime! Framed by a halo of lustrous champagne Pearls arranged into a charming teardrop shape.

VERY GOOD. This Georgian 9ct Gold Pearl "teardrop" mourning brooch is in very good condition. Her Gold remains bright and rich, with the textured details all intact. Each Pearl has a beautiful lustre and is securely set, the woven hair section is also secure. She functions well as a brooch, with all components attached. There is some wear throughout, but this is commensurate with age. Considering how old this brooch is, she is overall in remarkable shape!
