Determining whether a piece of Victorian hair jewelry was intended as a sentimental love token or a mourning tribute can sometimes be tricky. In the Victorian era, locks of hair and elaborate hairwork pieces were often given and treasured as keepsakes in the same spirit that we might have carried a photo of a loved one in our wallets ten years ago, or now use as the image on our smart phone lock screens today. This mid Victorian ring modeled in 14k gold is one of those pieces you could make a convincing argument about for either purpose. The ring features sculptural foliate shoulders and a locket face engraved with the initials "WvD" which opens to reveal a neatly braided lock of hair.
