They are found in all shapes: oval, round, heart-shaped. Some are inlaid with hard stone engraved with the owner’s initials, others are simply gold. Most of the time they are inlaid with either small pearls, small stones (rubies, garnets) but can also be enameled. The most common enamels are blue, black. Sometimes these photo holders have hair on them: they are then mourning jewels in which a physical memory of the deceased person is kept.
Photo holders and medallions are nice jewelry to accompany a chain or to keep a memory. Here is Maison Mohs’ selection.
