Victorian hair jewelry has long fascinated. It's incredibly rare, however, that a piece comes with multiple artifacts attesting to its provenance.

This piece is an ornate brooch, made of 10K yellow gold, with a 16mm x 10mm bezeled window, behind which is a woven bit of hair. Accompanying the piece are:

(1) what we assume is the original paper box, painted green, from G.W. Clarke & Co. in Montreal, Canada.
(2) the calligraphed paper note that the piece was originally presented with, which reads: "To Mabel R. Barker with the fond love of her parents on her birthday 21 Dec. 1882."

The note and brooch are in exquisite condition — the box is worn and the top is missing two sides.

All fine jewelry products include:

  • Free insured and trackable shipping within the United States
  • A 3 day try-on period with the option to return

Jewelry is meant to be worn but it's also an expensive ornament. Here are a few suggestions to extend the life of your jewelry:

  • We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or another trusted jeweler every six months.
  • You should remove your rings before swimming or performing any household cleaning, as harsh chemicals can interact with precious metals and permanently damage some stones.
  • Generally, we suggest that you do not wear your jewelry to the gym, in the shower, at the pool, or while sleeping.

We do not believe in selling something we cannot service. Should an issue arise, please get in touch. We offer an extensive range of repair services and are here to help!
