ABOUT VICTORIAN MOURNING JEWELRY:
With the death of Prince Albert in 1861, Queen Victoria adorned herself in black jet mourning jewelry, causing the rest of the nation to do the same. Since the petrified wood jet was expensive, black glass buttons came into fashion. Also the time of the Civil War in the United States, keepsake charms, lockets and other sentimental expressions of love and memory flourished throughout the Victorian era into the early 20th century.
