ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

This brooch was made circa 1820-1840. It is 15ct gold which has been finely chased with engraved decoration and has been set with turquoise which literally means “Forget me not” after the flower and is a hidden romantic message. The use of the knot to indicate binding together and the heart to indicate love are further messages. There is a small glazed compartment at the back of the heart which can be used for a photograph but originally held a lock of hair.
