24 Three Drop Hair Earrings

These woven hair earrings are very pretty! They hang well, with 2 drops at the back and one in the front. They are set in 15ct Gold. Hair jewellery was an important part of a families possessions! When children or family members travelled abroad to work or live, it was often for a long time, so parents would want something to remember them by, and hair pieces were the perfect solution.   They provided an actual part of the person and could be an ever present reminder of a loved one.  Occasionally, if the hair was part of a brooch, they could be inscribed as a memorial if the person died, but in general, hair jewellery and pictures were an organic reminder of loved ones far away. It was an incredible art and some pieces were made that are really exquisite.
