Juicy early Victorian carbuncle love!!!🍎🍒🍓💦
DM for details.

Mourning Jewellery. I’ve got it. Pretty sure the hand/flowers are vulcanite (£40), but the hair brooch below it looks good for Victorian jet (£45 - has a crack) - the silver hair brooch is larger than usual (£30) and the one below it looks to possibly be gold - I’m testing it tomorrow to determine value. The hair has been removed from all of them. Get your morbs on!

"You only regret the vintage you didn't buy." Ain't that the truth. We had the chance to snap up these two memorial hair-work rings last year and passed on them. And we haven't stopped thinking about them since. Tell us what vintage you regret not buying. #MourningMonday

"It is a shame this this key is separated from its watch, as keys often were included within the same box as their counterparts, however, having something so important as a sentimental keepsake tells a tale of a time when every factor of the Romantic period was integrated within the elements of daily life.” #artofmourning #mourningjewellery #mourningjewelry #mourningring #showmeyourjewels #sentimentality #victorian #history #love #remember #art #gold #mourning #memorial #sentimental #theartofmourning

Just listed. Two precious antique #mourningrings

This ring predates massive social and political change throughout the world, but on its own, it speaks to the very nature of love between two people. It was worn for its reason to constantly remind the wearer of the person whose life was cut short. #artofmourning #mourningjewellery #mourningjewelry #mourningring #showmeyourrings #showmeyourjewels #sentimentality #victorian #history #love #remember #art #gold #mourning #memorial #sentimental #theartofmourning

When a woman is frozen of feeling, when she can no longer feel herself, when her blood, her passion, no longer reach the extremities of her psyche, when she is desperate; then a fantasy life is far more pleasurable than anything else she can set her sights upon. Her little match lights, because they have no wood to burn, instead burn up the psyche as though it were a big dry log. The psyche begins to play tricks on itself; it lives now in the fantasy fire of all yearning fulfilled. This kind of fantasizing is like a lie: If you tell it often enough, you begin to believe it.

I did a small clean up for this beautiful Georgian mourning ring. As you can see the hair had become unraveled over the years but it at one time it was nicely woven together and belonged to a husband and wife. The underside is hand engraved for Mary and Robert French. 🖤🖤 I love mourning jewelry and the sentimental importance of the hair! And I know sometimes it looks messy or funky and some of you don’t like the hair 🙄 blah blah. But for this item I chose to keep the hair tucked behind a small piece of black satin, that I added after cleaning up the funk. I’m happy to keep everything original, just add this small piece of fabric, and make this ring more wearable. And it’s not a fucking shaker bc I don’t do that if there is hair. 😊😘

L A C Y L U R E 🥀This gorgeous mourning brooch is available 🍂🥀 a plait of hair encased behind glass and surrounded by beautiful seed pearls ✨ Everything is set into a lovely 9ct gold frame and is listed on my fall collection on my website 💫
