Edwardian Remembrance Brooch with Ruby and Seed Pearls.
Brushed gold mourning or sweetheart brooch with rope and ball work to the face and a raised oval mount containing a flower head picked out in seed pearls and a central little ruby. The use of these stones would have symbolism - pearls were for tears. Floral motifs were romantic. The rear has an oval panel with what could either be fabric or very tightly woven blond hair - under glass. Body of brooch is hallmarked for 9ct gold, made in Birmingham, 1902. Maker's mark is C & Co. Brooch measures 4.2 cm by 1.6 cm.
