The Victorians had a mourning dress tradition which was simply a symbol for letting others know they had lost a loved one. Queen Victoria's mourning buttons were made from expensive jet, a petrified wood found in bogs outside London. To meet the fashion demand for affordable black buttons Paris began the production of 'French Jet', black glass.
Our Victorian Black Glass Mourning Button Jewelry is in remembrance of our sweet Lance.
