These two lovely pieces of Victorian mourning jewelry are very unique.. One is a lyre pin, the other a drum charm, both created out of intricate woven hair. One can imagine the hair most likely came from a loved one who was a great lover of music. The lyre is an unknown yellow metal, and the drum is made of 10k yellow gold. Hairwork, the art of using human hair to create jewelry, memorial wreaths, and sculptures, reached the height of its popularity during the Victorian era. The resulting pieces served as links between people that bridged physical distance, time, and even life and death. The durability and resilience of hair as a material resulted in artifacts that often outlasted not only the people who cherished them as mementos but the correlating paper documents that provided historical background.

Suspected gemstones may be tested with Presidium Gem Tester II. This tester does not identify all possibilities but gives a good approximation of major gemstones. Please note that it cannot differentiate between natural and created stones. Suspected diamonds may be confirmed with Diamond Selector II which differentiates between natural diamonds and imitations.

Seed pearls will not be tested and may be cultured or imitation. Stamped metals are not tested unless suspect. Unstamped metals may be tested using JSP acid testing solution. This test is subjective and determinations will be approximate. I always do my best to ensure the accuracy of my listings. Unless jewelry is marked (as much of my jewelry is from England and bears assay marks,) the age is merely an educated guess. Also, antique jewelry will often have minor or major!
