Mourning Glories

Somewhat unsurprisingly, I'm rather a fan of jewelry. Sparkle alone is enough to grab my attention, but it's always more interesting when there's a story of some kind behind the glitter. So yesterday, while killing time in the doctor's waiting room, I read an interview with a collector of antique sentimental and mourning jewelry. Very informative, not to mention plain ol' neato. No pics of mourning tiaras, though. Seriously, they exist and are often gorgeous. Some are made from iron, which means that it looks like you're wearing a wrought iron fence on your head. An awesome wrought iron fence, obviously.
