Pearl Bow Mourning Ring


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.

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.
