Dating to the late 1800's, this brooch is made of 18 karat yellow gold with rose-cut diamonds and opals. Originally a memorial piece, the back side of this brooch has a little glass door that likely would have housed a lock of hair of a loved one. Would also be a good place for a photo. This piece can be worn as a brooch or as a pendant necklace, equipped with a swiveling bale. Measures about 1 3/4 inches from top to bottom.
