Antique Fine Jewelry Heirloom Victorian Mourning Brooch Necklace Pendant onyx 14k gold seed pearl mourning jewelry

Polished black onyx is set in 14K gold mounting and topped with a gold ivy leaf and three tiny seed pearls.
The setting has original tube hinge with pin and an old c-clasp.
There is also a bale, used in the Victorian era to secure the brooch with a fine chain around worn around the neck.
Unmarked for content but carefully tested as 14k gold

Measurements: weight is 13g, 1 1/4" across and approx 1/4" deep.

This beautiful piece is in excellent condition given age. Has a beautiful patina on the gold, I can see no damage to the onyx or setting. The only tiny flaw I found, is that the onyx stone rotates ever so slightly in the setting, The stone is secure however, and I only mention it for full disclosure. It does not effect the wearability in my opinion.

Additional info:
--Ivy is the sign of immortality and everlasting life. A plant affiliated with the gods Osiris and Dionysos, it can also symbolize constant attachment and affection. While see pearls represent tears, and black onyx for Mourning and remembrance.
