This is a small sampling of what is in my jewelry box (well not necessarily a jewelry box - this was an old flatware service box that we revamped for the purpose of holding some of my collection.
This bracelet was made in such a way that it will stretch. Kind of like the stretchy trendy little beaded bracelets you find nowadays - but there is no elastic in this bracelet - just the way it was woven. Black enamel under the flower decoration, so this was most likely a mourning piece.
This is a beautiful little rose gold ring that has hair incorporated into the band. The initials AEL are inscribed on the crest on top.
This is an amazing set of earrings that are in need of some jet stones replaced. These are hand cut faceted stones so are very hard to replace, I could replace them with some modern black glass, but the look wouldn't be right, so.....In the little half moon area there is a woven mat of hair under the glass - which is actually Rock Crystal. Very Victorian and very much a Mourning piece.
