Thanks! I love antique jewellery so I appreciated this link, not simply for the lovely pictures but for what I learnt. I'd always regarded mourning jewellery as merely jet pieces and hair woven items.Yet,this range is extensive; The black enamelled/gold items are my faves and those unusual eye rings! They might seem macabre yet every item indeed tells a story.Alittle family history is preserved within these items. For once, with portraits and hair locks,women and children became a focus of the family history.
