What is amazing about this Mourning Hair Jewelry is the length of the woven necklace hair. It was woven with two different types of weave, as can be seen in the picture, with the two weaves alternating with each other.
The attached locket measures 1, not including the bail. The loop that hold the locket is marked "1/20 12 KT". So is thus Gold Filled.The locket itself has no marks on it, but test positive for 10K, and not 14K or 18K. So I believe the locket to also be Gold Filled.
The photo inside the locket is of a middle-aged lady holding a book, and is placed under beveled glass. I have no hints to her identity. This dates to the late Victorian period. The amazing thing is the length of the woven hair, and the craftsmanship of the weaving. It is so well done.
I can see no breakage of the hair, except I can see a very short single strand. I hope you like and appreciate it.
