Victorian Hairwork Mourning Cross with 10K Gold Filled Caps. This antique pendant or watch fob was made about 1860 - 1875 of woven human hair. Making jewelry and mementos from hair was popular in the Victorian era. Often, objects were made in mourning of a lost loved one and were fashioned from the hair of the departed. Jewelry was also woven from the hair of the artist herself as a type of betrothal gift. This cross is made of reddish auburn hair and is finished with fittings of 10K Gold Fill that are elegantly chased with scrolls.
