Skillfully hand engraved scrolled patterns dance across the surface and swirl around the gemstone cluster to create the most ornate Victorian mourning pendant!
The prettiest old cut Ruby glimmers wildly as she's presented in the heart of five lustrous natural Seed Pearls to form a sweet daisy shape. If you follow the curved surface round to the back of the pendant, a small glass compartment displaying a lock of hair and the daintiest Goldwire initials are visible. This cute pendant is the most unique piece of morning jewellery we have in our current collection!
A perfect gift for any antique jewellery lover, or a superb treat for yourself to add to your collection.

EXCELLENT: This Victorian mourning pendant is in magnificent antique condition. It's such a rare treat to find a piece of mourning jewellery in such immaculate condition after it being in use for over a century! The Ruby has no visible signs of wear and the Pearls have a wonderful sheen. The scrolled patterns are still deep and clear and the heart itself has no dings or dents. The only thing to mention is that the compartment on the back is a little loose, but the original glass is intact and undamaged. A wonderful piece of antique jewellery sure to make a fine addition to anyone's collection!
