Mourning or memorial jewellery has been worn for centuries, especially during the Victorian era where funerals and the events attached to burying, immortalizing, and remembering the dead was of much importance. Common symbols used in mourning jewellery included forget-me-nots, flowers, hair of a loved one, hearts, crosses, ivy leaves, and more macabre symbols such as skulls, coffins and gravestones. I refer to these, and expound upon them glamorizing death to the level of Haute Couture Catwalk. My mourning jewellery illustrates these different forms of death. Each piece tells a story about the deceased and their widow.
