With its elongated octagonal shape and tidy basket weave design, this brooch also has a sweet inscription, "Sacred to Filial Affection" with initials following. This refers to the relationship of children and their parents; a nice reminder that some hair jewelry was worn to symbolize affection rather than grief. A wonderful Georgian memento in a broad shape. Definitely a unique conversation starter for the modern historical jewelry enthusiast!
