This is a Victorian Mourning Watch Fob Locket Pendant with layered onyx on one side and carnelian on the other, all set in 10K gold. The locket was sealed when I got it, but I opened it. Inside is a sealed side with something in it! The other has a picture holder with no picture in it. The “glass” appears to be rock crystal and is broken. Dates from the 1880s.

There is an example of this type of locket on page 200 of Collecting Victorian Jewelry by C. Jeanenne Bell (KP Books ©2004)...

Beautiful flower with petals and leaves made of faux tortoise (celluloid?) or nut casing. The flower is suspended on a spring on the end of the hairpin so that it trembles. The flower is about 2 inches by 2 3/4 inches and 3/4 inch deep – very 3-dimensional. The spring attaches to a 3 3/8 inch long two-prong hairpin. Condition is excellent for such an old, delicate piece. One petal has a spot of surface damage and one leaf is partially loose. Not much, considering … ...

This is a scatter pin made from 19th Century United States silver coins. I originally had a pair of these Victorian LOVE TOKENS, but just sold one of them. The coin is a Liberty capped bust half-dime from 1835. One side of the coin has been ground flat and engraved with the initials PBJ (or maybe PBI – the script is quite fancy and the third letter is ambiguous).
