This black enamel, gold and seed pearl mourning brooch is classic for the early Victorian period; seed pearls symbolize tears. The white on black cameo set in gold and decorated by inset black enamel (taille d’epargne) is early to mid-Victorian and may be worn as a mourning piece or simply as a piece of jewelry with only decorative significance. The sharp contrast of black and white in cameos and black enamel on gold were strongly favored during the early to mid-Victorian era.
