Mourning Jewlery

It's the height of Summer - the sun is shining, the air is warm and here we are showcasing some beautiful Mourning Jewlery! Though there is always the possibility to view this genre as something dark it actually is about celebrating life, honoring love and (as many of the Victorians saw it) fashion. We covet alot of these period pieces & started picking up a few to test the waters in the stores and have been pleasantly surprised how many people share our enthusiasm for these unique ( &  collectible) beauties.


Incredible 'In Memory Of' gold locket / brooch with gorgeous blue enamel & glass back that opens.



          Large Vulcanite love birds locket with intricate detail - strung with Topaz & Gold Beads. 


                                 French enamel & gold brooch with woven hair behind glass.

 

Jet Pendant necklace that we had in the shop briefly but had to re-string, back in Cambridge now.
