WILLOW WEEP FOR LOSS ( Victorian Mourning Jewelry Hardstone Cameo Brooch / Pin): I am pleased to offer this beautifully crafted Victorian Mourning brooch. (c. 1850-60) Purchased from a family estate in New Orleans, I couldn’t resist the blend of materials used to create this petite memorial. The mount is 9KT gold with an ornate, dainty surround of scallops and scrolls. The black enameling is pristine and at its center is a raised gold bezel mounted black and white hardstone cameo, hand carved to depict an ornate urn below a weeping willow tree. The back of this brooch has a glass locket compartment containing a lovely memento display consisting of a graceful hair plume accented by gilt wire and a pearl. Both the original C clasp closure and extended pin stem are in place. Sweetly feminine, this dainty Antique Mourning Brooch exhibits the timeless appeal that makes refined and tasteful jewelry as wearable today as it was over a century ago. Wear this poignant memorial combined with another brooch for double impact – why not three at once? Now that is a confident and meaningful expression of personal style!

Condition: Excellent.
Size: 1 1/2" wide, 1 1/8” high, cameo is 3/8” wide, 1/2" high, 1/4" deep.
