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

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.
