The Stages of Mourning Dress
  • The First stage

Black was the traditional

color of mourning because it

symbolized night and an absence and joy of light.

  • The Last stage

Also known as half mourning, the colors permitted were gray, mauve, purple and white.

  • The Second stage:

Inthis stage women were

allowed to add white to the

cuff or around the collar.

Wearing mourning dress helped to identify the mourner, showed respect for the deceased. It encouraged the sympathy of the community and matched the wearer’s mood

mourning jewelry
Victorian mourning jewelry mirrored the lives and times of the people who wore it. It was a souvenir to remember a loved one, a reminder to the living of the inevitability of death, and a status symbol, especially during the Victorian era.  This jewelry was generally made of materials such as jet, gutta-percha, gold, pinchbeck, and human hair.
