Woven Pearl Mourning Locket


As the newest addition to our Mourning Collection, this locket is based on antique Victorian jewelry worn to remember the dead. Queen Elizabeth I famously wore a locket ring, which bore pictures of herself adjacent to her mother, who was beheaded when the future-queen was just three years old.

This deeply personal piece is crafted with traditional mourning motifs—gold-plated silver, black enamel, and freshwater pearls—for an elegant, dramatic appearance befitting only the grief stricken. The woven exterior opens to reveal two inner spaces, which can store photographs, small notes, or miniature mementos from loved ones past. 

This Mourning Locket, made to be worn with any chain, can be worn at any time and used to remember anyone, living or passed,, like parents, kids, pets, friends, or lovers.

Mourning jewelry was popularized by Queen Victoria's infamous 4-decade-long mourning period after the tragic passing of her true love, Prince Albert. She was known to wear only black jewels, thus starting a new trend in jewelry across the land. By the time this fashion trickled down to the aristocracy, imagery in mourning jewelry became softer and more sentimental - featuring black stones and pearls.

Antique mourning rings are incredible symbols of love, life, and death in our pasts - however they are often hidden away in private collections of the wealthy and elite, fetching thousands of dollars at auctions.

We have reimagined these symbols to be accessible to all people who wish to wear them.
