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.
