This hair pendant is a lovely example from the Victorian era. The hair work is an intricate weave that draws the eye with it's unique texture. It's rare to find a mourning piece with hair in such excellent condition, especially when the hair-work is so detailed. The spiral details on the gold setting are also an excellent touch!
