Mourning ring showing a photograph of Prince Albert. This ring was commissioned and worn by Queen Victoria. When Albert died in 1861, his widow Queen Victoria entered into a state of mourning which lasted for the remainder of her life. The Queen expected anyone who set foot in her court to observe mourning for her departed husband and her socially conscious upper and middle class subjects soon followed suit, making mourning into a fashion in its own right.
