Back in the days before photos, it was tough to remember what your loved ones looked like. Unless. . . . you had them painted on a piece of jewelry that you could wear. Brilliant idea!

I don’t know who this little lady was, but I sure do like the looks of her. With her blonde hair all put up and her best Sunday clothes, perhaps. It’s clear she meant a great deal to someone. Someone who cared enough to have a portrait painted of her. She’s nested in a sterling silver bezel, surrounded by a 14kt (tested not marked) rope motif, followed by yet another sterling embellished ring around that. On the back there’s a working pin with a rotating closure and a ring for hanging as a pendant. I do wonder if her glass cover has been replaced – it’s pretty pristine for the age of the brooch. She’s 33m long and 28mm wide.

She’s not perfect (see the close-up photo and a smudge on the right-hand side), but then again, would you be at her age?
