Victorian Onyx Mourning Brooch Necklace
The brooch on this necklace is an antique onyx and gold Victorian mourning pin. The exact date is unknown but my guess is mid 1880's. I came upon this piece while browsing in an antique mall in the middle of know-where in the mid-west. They had no idea what it was so I was able to purchase it very reasonably which explains why a brooch worth a lot of money is being offered for $79. If you're looking for an unusual gift for a special history buff this one's for you. Strung on nylon coated wire for durability and is about 16" adjustable to about 16.5".
