VICTORIAN MOURNING JEWELRY
During the Victorian era, it was common to wear “mourning jewelry”. This jewelry typically included hair from deceased loved one.
The deceased loved one’s hair would be carefully arranged within the brooch, often creating intricate pictures or designs.
Hair was considered to be an ideal keepsake, since it does not break down over time.

Haha it hasn’t happened yet. There’s still time!!
