This superb American Victorian cross is embellished with natural seed pearls, black enamel and based in 14K gold. But the best part is the back where we see a locket window with a precious fabric of the deceased. The gold base is inscribed "In Memorium W B Obt. 6th Jany 1857." And so, W.B. will continue to be remembered by the beautiful rendition of this memento.
