Traditionally crafted as a token of remembrance or a mourning memento, Victorian hair jewelry embraces the era’s romanticism to the fullest. This rare example acquired by Heather Ramey includes a written provenance of the piece, which was handed down from mother to daughter and made with the hair of a woman born in 1788. This artfully crafted necklace has been woven into a chain and cross with gold spaces and a hairpin clasp. It arrives in a specimen box for safekeeping.
Chain length 16”. Cross H 2.38”. W 1 5/8”. This gently used vintage item is in good condition. Shows some signs of age.
