This Civil War period jewelry is often referred to as memorial, remembrance or mourning jewelry. These names come from the simple fact that a loved one made these items so that they would have a personal item close at hand to remember or to mourn. This watch chain is made of woven brown hair with ornate gold-filled attachments. The center drop is a side slide locket in the form of a cross. It is engraved and set with 9 turquoise stones. There is nothing inside. The hair has one area with slight fraying but strong.
