A pair of Victorian hairwork earrings with tiny drops woven of brown hair and capped in gold. Victorian hair jewelry is often mistakenly associated with mourning, but more often than not, jewelry of this style was simply sentimental. A lock of hair from a living child or relative might be used to make a pair of earrings-- sometimes even made by the wearer herself. With newer 14K yellow gold wires.
