Rare Early 18th Century Stuart Crystal Pendant

Georgian era early 18th century rock crystal mourning pendant in a very unusual diamond shape. Rudimentary engraving dates the pendant to 1720. Woven hair set underneath the crystal with gold wire forming the initials "LA". It would have originally been worn on a fine ribbon in the hair or on the neck. 

English in origin. *acquired both pendants pictured from same collection out of London and have similar engravings, likely they were memorializing the same person.
