Offered here for your consideration is a. Fine late Georgian or early Victorian memorial gold-filled pendant with woven hair. With a coil of braided hair set behind glass in a filigree-worked gold-filled pendant setting.

It dates to the mid to late 19th century. In the Georgian and Victorian eras, woven hair art was used to memorialize a departed loved one or given as a keepsake memorial for a loved one in their absence.

This pendant was worn above the heart and was clearly meant to keep someone dear in an intimate proximity. It is in overall good, as-pictured used estate condition. The bezel for the crystal has opened at a soldered joint and is ever so slightly loose. Otherwise, there is some light edge wear here and there, some fine and light surface scratches and other signs of light wear consistent with age.

X Dm 0.87 in. D 6 mm x Dm 22 mm.
