Shire Book: Sentimental Jewellery

Shire Book: Sentimental Jewellery

Sentimental jewellery was widely produced during the 18th and 19th centuries, and although it was often a central feature of remeberance and mourning by no means all of it is linked to death.  Many pieces were given as tokens of affection, sometimes inscribed with personalised messages and often elaborately designed. In this book Ann Louise Luthi escribes the origins of mourning jewellery and helps the reader to identify these appealing jewels, which can tell us much about the way in which our ancestors lived, loved and died.
