In Victorian times, an eight-pointed star was a common motif of guidance and wisdom that was often found on all kinds of jewelry, including the antique mourning ring this ring references. Only the wealthy and aristocratic could've afforded such an extravagance at the time.
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. These faceted Victorian stars were also believed to bring wearers guidance, good fortune, and profound spiritual insight.
