Description:

This Georgian 9ct Gold Pearl "teardrop" mourning brooch is an incredible slice of history. Crafted from a richly saturated 9ct Gold, she features a textured surface and intricate rope border.

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.

By the end of the 17th Century, it was customary for those who could afford it, to leave a provision in one's will for the creation of mourning jewellery. It is incredible whenever we find these special jewels, each with a story to tell!
