In the 16th and 17th centuries it was a common keepsake to give a loved one a braided lock of hair or clipped ponytail, in several diverse cultures, to show devotion. Often after death of a loved one, these keepsakes were faceted into jewelry and ornaments as mementos.

Each braid is solid sterling silver. Please select between the pendant alone, individual earring, or necklace.
