Artist/Maker:Unknown 
Memorial jewellery to honour the dead is one of the largest categories of 18th- century jewellery. From 1760 there was a vogue for memorial medallions or lockets. These became especially popular in Britain.
Neo-classical motifs of funerary urns, plinths and obelisks joined the more traditional cherubs, angels and weeping willows. Hair was preserved  within the locket.
