About the event
Mourning jewelry was worn in both Europe and America as a way of honoring and remembering those that have passed, from famous figures to family members.
Now associated mainly with the Victorian era, ppularized by Queen Victoria, mourning jewelry was never intended to be morbid. It was a popular means of combining fashion with sentiment, particularly the sentiment of grief over loss.
Join the Texas Living History Association and Sarah Nehama, noted lecturer on the topic of Mourning Jewelry at museums and antique symposia in the US and Australia, to explore this fascinating topic.
