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 shipping within the United States and a 3-day "try-on" period. If at the end of three days you decide to return the item, just let us know! You can return for either an exchange or a refund — your choice. Read our Return Policy.

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your jewelry will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. 

We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one!
