‘Mourning locket in the form of a funerary urn with seed pearls and amethysts, reverse with lock of hair. Inscribed around edge in gold on white enamel, ‘P.ALFRED. BORN 22.SEP 1780 DIED 20 AUG 1782′.’ Is what Hayden Peterson from Art of Mourning wrote about this very special piece of art:
A resource for memorial, mourning, sentimental jewellery and art by Lord HAYDEN PETERS, is what the tagline is of it’s website.
His collection exist of very beautiful, historical and unique pieces, like the ring above. An Urn mourning ring from 1773.
Jewellery with a little space in it – for hair or ash for example, is what is catching our eye. Like this bracelet, it is keeping the hair in a beautiful way.
