This collection recreates the romanticism and sentiment carried by Victorian Era hair jewellery.
The Victorians lived through a time of great disorder - the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution, extreme poverty, fast-changing economics. Death subsequently grew to be a theme of great importance in their culture. While some hair jewellery was created as mourning pieces or “memento mori” (a Latin phrase translated as “remember your mortality”), it was also given as a token of love and friendship from lovers, family members and friends.
