Mourning Signet Ring$219.00
In Victorian times, those in mourning often wore rings given to them by the dying to display their anguish. Only the wealthy and aristocratic could afford such an extravagance at the time. The gold and black rings were traditionally worn on the ring finger. Pearls were a common motif of the time that represented the tears of those left behind.
Queen Victoria popularized mourning attire and jewelry when she notoriously grieved for almost 40 years following the sudden death of her beloved Prince Albert. To have one on your hand was a great honor, proving you were among the most important people in the life of the departed.
Today, mourning rings can be used to commemorate a person, a moment, or even a relationship. This piece references traditional mourning ring designs, reading “In Memory Of” across the shank as a constant reminder of profound loss.
