GEORGIAN JEWEL ( Antique Georgian Mourning Jewelry Garnet and Hair Brooch / Pin ): What a lovely and unusual brooch! The use of faceted, foil backed garnets to frame an oval compartment containing light brown woven hair may indicate this is a sentimental brooch for a living loved one – though garnets were used in the late mourning period. Whether mourning or sentimental, this Georgian Brooch has a cheerful appearance and is in incredibly good condition for its close to 200 year age. (c. 1820) Both hair and garnets are set in 9KT rose gold with the original elongated pin stem and C clasp. The brooch is slightly curved adding to its appeal. The glass enclosed hair makes it quite safe to wear. Don't pass up this affordable antique beauty!

Condition: Excellent. All original.
Size: 1 1/8” wide (not including pin stem), 3/4” high, 3/8” deep.
