While mourning jewelry has been around for centuries, it wasn’t until after 1860 that the inclusion of hair became widespread. In a world without polaroids and home movies, wearing a lock of hair preserved in jewelry was a visual way to remember someone you’d lost. 
 
It may seem a bit morbid… but we say there’s nothing wrong with a little morbid fascination. Especially when it comes to pieces as stunning as our Mourning Knot ring. Featuring a band of 18k gold, a delicate stripe of black enamel, and an intricate knot of blonde hair, this one is a romance dream and her halo of seed pearls (which could indicate that the ring was in memory of a child) are just the icing on the cake.
This dark little lady is edgy, macabre, superbly gorgeous, and perfect for the girl who wears her love of the past like a badge of honor.
