Jewelry made from dead people

by ally - on June 24th, 2009

I’m aware that it used to be fairly normal for women to give a lock of their hair to their significant other.  However, this jewelry is beyond creepy.  It takes the hair of your dead loved ones and turns it into jewelry for you to wear on a regular basis.  Wearing it on you is supposed to symbolize the everlasting physical connection between the mourner and the lost loved one.  This hairy creation comes in the form of a rosary, watch chain tear catcher and a necklace.  There is no actual word on pricing, but it’s unlikely that these will come at an affordable price.

    Wouldn’t this go back to the old tradition of making brooches and such out of the hair of dead loved ones? It used to be fairly common at some point in time — the Victorian Era I believe.
