Description

A fascinating Antique Georgian Mourning bracelet from the early 19th Century featuring a large 18ct Gold double-sided locket with a magnificent display of curled hair and forget me nots beautifully preserved behind a glass window.

Mourning jewellery was worn in remembrance of a deceased loved one and sometimes contained a lock of their hair so that a piece of them was always kept close to the wearer.
Two strands of neatly plated brown hair form the band of the bracelet which wraps around the locket and is held in place by 18ct Gold links and a large box clasp with beautiful foliate engraving.
Its rare to find bracelets of this type in such good condition and has clearly been treasured over the centuries.
