Antique Mourning Bracelet/locket 15k Gold, Natural Pearls & Garnet
A very fine example of a Mourning bracelet. The center medallion is large, impressive and completely. The hidden push down tongue and groove clasp is in perfect. The pearls are natural and have beautiful white lustre. The garnet is large, foil backed and is collet crimped. Behind the gold medallion there are 3 initials which I believe are FVC. The locket opens up to reveal additional braided hair. It is bezel set in gold. It can be removed, if wanted and add your own photo. The hair was weaved with a beautiful pattern on the edges and through the center. The bracelet measures 7 & 1/8 inches long by 1 inch wide. The gold medallion is large and measures 1 & 1/4 inches long by 1 inch. This does not include both gold pieces on either side. The bracelet weighs 13.2 grams. Most of the weight is in the gold as the hair work is lightweight. It is in excellent condition. It is circa 1840. And sits directly on the late Georgian, early Victorian border. A super high quality piece which is suitable for the finest of collections. Antique boxes display only, not included, the bangle will come in the. Box in the last photo.
