WITH LOVING WISHES ( Victorian Mourning Jewelry Cameo Bracelet ): Victorian hairwork was frequently given as a sentimental token and keepsake. This feminine bracelet from my personal collection was a gift from a loving Aunt to her niece. (c. 1840 - 1870) The main portion of the bracelet is comprised of 4 rows of 2 color tubular, table-worked hair that has been braided together. The box clasp and findings are engraved rose gold. The back of the clasp reads "With Loving Wishes from Aunt and Conrad" engraved in beautiful script. The small shell cameo is raised in a bezel setting. This pretty bracelet was no doubt highly prized by the lucky young lady who received it and cared for it so carefully. Will fit a 6" wrist or smaller. Condition: Excellent. Slight wear on the back of the clasp, but not visible. Handle this piece by the clasp, not the hair, to maintain its fine condition. Size: 6 1/2" long, Braided Hair 1" wide, Cameo Clasp 1" long & 7/8" wide.
