In Victorian times, it was commonplace for the dying to commission mourning rings that would be given to their closest loved ones at their funeral as a form of remembrance. Only the wealthy and aristocratic could've afforded such an extravagance at the time. To have one was a great honor by displaying how dearly important you were to someone departed.
Queen Victoria popularized mourning attire and jewelry when she notoriously grieved for almost 40 years following the sudden death of her beloved Prince Albert.
Today, mourning rings can be used to commemorate a person, a moment, or even a relationship. The pearls represent the tears of those left behind. This piece’s delicate bow shape serves as a reminder that the time we have is a gift, but also that even tragedy can render beautiful memories.
