This is a fascinating piece of mourning jewelry.

Most likely made at the end of the 19th century, this brooch has three interlocking rings of 14 karat yellow gold that are beautifully accented with delicate swirls. The focal point is a lapis colored button of blue enamel decorated with four gold thistles, each with a rose cut diamond flower.

During the early stages of mourning in the Victorian period, the wardrobe (including jewelry) was required to be black. In later stages, however, the reintroduction of certain dark colors, notably purple or blue, was allowed, which indicates this was a piece designed to be worn some time after the death of a loved one.

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

  • We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or your trusted local 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, 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!
