This black enamel hair brooch is a classic Victorian piece. The use of hair in jewlery dates back to the seventeenth century; the pieces were used to express love and mourning. The way that the hair is braided under the glass is very traditional; the differing colors could be different family members hair braided together. This type of sentimental jewelry is quite interesting and reminds us of the importance jewlery plays in peoples lives; in this case it quite literally holds a piece of those we love.
