Antique ca. 1840s Victorian triple-gem mourning pin

An antique mourning pin with a large, gem-set face that dates to the Early Victorian Era. The face is trimmed in ten flat cut rhodolite garnets that flash with a wonderful color-shifting plum to fuschia. Each garnet is daintily set in a cutaway, closed-back collet. Inside this ring of gems is a smaller circle of seed pearls (20), encircling a polished bloodstone. The bloodstone rests where a beveled glass compartment must once have held a bit of plaited hair work, now absent. The replacement is beautifully done and the pin is in outstanding condition, with no cracks or chips to ANY of the garnet. 9 CT gold, likely English in origin.

Note: This pin could be converted into a ring! Please contact us if you would like to discuss options. 

Measurements: 1" x 7/8"
Era: Early Victorian, ca. 1830-1840s
