    For a collector of antique jewelry, some mourning hair jewels belong also to be present in the collection. These two examples, a ring of 1821 and a brooch of 1824. Both gold with a border of black stones probably Onyx and carrying some hair of a loved deceased.
    These two jewels are tiny, but a very good memorial I think, don't you agree?

      Good afternoon (my local time) Dottie, thanks for your kindly words. Mourning jewels have special attraction for me, I dont know why but I think because they have a special sign of love for the deceased.
