This is a genuine antique Georgian Era mourning brooch. It has a seed pearl halo around the intricately woven blonde hair center.
That is surrounded by 12 table cut garnets each tipped with seed pearls. There are seed pearls missing on the outside ring of three of the garnets, (please see pictures). It has a T-bar hinge with C clasp, it also has a bale so it can be worn as a pendant. It approximately measures 1 1/4" wide by 1 1/8" tall.The brooch is not signed nor has an assay mark, as common to the era, but I highly suspect that the stones are set in sterling silver. It is in overall great condition and will make a great addition to any collection or gift as well.
