    This is an antique moving mourning jewelry. It may have been one half of a pair of earrings there is a brooch made of, hence the more modern safety clasp. This brooch consists of whole fine filigree buttons. Under glass (Essex?) The image of two hearts and, if I see a good irascible bird (dove) between two bushes / trees. It seems to be partly to see a drawing but there is also some structure (below the bird) maybe hair.
    The brooch is not marked but tested as 14ct gold and is quite small: 3 x 1.8 cm.

      You're right, Agram, the image is made from hair, gold threads on an ivory thin plaque.
      I don't think it beeing a mourning piece due to the symbols, the two flaming hearts, the dove and what seems to be forget me not. So, rather a love token!
