A lovely piece of Victorian hairwork sentimental jewelry. Bracelet consists of three interlocking strands of hollow round weaves of hair, each with their own unique design, joined together by an ornate etched box clasp. Possibly a piece of mourning jewelry, or a memento to and from a lover. No markings.

"Throughout the 19th century, this had become popularised to the extent that it was the primary form of sentimental gift giving in jewellery. Seen in lockets, rings, brooches, bracelets, earrings, stickpins and artwork, this was a material that was beautiful and respected."

Bracelet diameter: 7.5" to 9" (hair band has slight stretch)

Condition: Excellent. No loose strands, hollow braids are intact with no fraying. Presents as mint.
