This incredibly rare 18ct Gold mourning hat pin is a splendid antique piece full of character! Featuring beautifully woven ashy blonde hair, it's evident that a substantial amount of time and energy was invested into the making of this hat pin, and it shows!

The 18ct Gold has a wonderful lustre, and has been sculpted perfectly around the hair to keep it secure.

Whatever you choose, this is a one-of-a-kind piece which is sure to make an avid collector very happy!
