Introducing the Limited Edition Victorian Mourning Hand Pins!
These pins are modeled after Mourning Brooches of the Victorian Era. These Brooches were made of many materials including: Jet (black fossilized wood), Vulcanite (sap of the Euphorbia or Ficus trees from Malaysia mixed with sulphur), Natural Horn, Bog Oak (fossilized wood or peat) French Jet/ Crepe Stone (black glass), Bois Durci (hardwood sawdust & blood), & Gutta Percha (sap of the Dichopsis tree). “During part of the Victorian period from about 1860 to 1890, this jewelry was the height of fashion and black was a stylish color, not just an ornament of mourning. Each carried special meaning as a memento of a loved one.”
The pins are made of Zinc Alloy metal and have a gorgeous black finish. The Velvet Apparition logo is engraved on the back of the pins. They’re are each approximately 1.5”. Choose from the drop down menu.
