14K yellow gold Victorian brooch. Long before Queen Victoria popularized mourning jewelry in the 1860’s, women all over the world would remember a loved one by having their hair made into rings, bracelets, pendants, and brooches. This Victorian yellow gold pin features a halo of lustrous white pearls, representing tears cried, surrounding an intricately woven plait of chestnut brown hair that is so finely braided you could easily mistake it for a piece of cloth!
