Mourning Jewelry: MJ081

A CHERISHED GIFT ( Victorian Mourning Jewelry Brooch / Pin ): This striated agate Victorian Mourning Brooch is jest perfect for the fashionable brown and green colors favored by fashion this year. The beveled rust colored agate stone is a beautiful contrast for the deep blonde braided hair under the glass cover. (c. 1850-70) The gold plated rim setting features applied decorative motifs at all four compass points. The elongated pin stem and C clasp closure are original to the piece. You can see the rivets that hold the hair compartment from the back. A richly colored and truly lovely Antique Brooch that will look chic on a suit at the office or great on denim. Designer Ralph Lauren has been featuring Scottish and Agate jewelry with his clothing recently. This brooch would make a dazzling duo with MJ077, the milky white brooch of similar design.

Condition: Excellent. A tiny ding at 4:00, noted for accuracy. Not visible to the naked eye.
Size: 1 ¾” high, 2 ¼” wide. Hair compartment ½” high, 1” wide.
