 Mourning jewelry became popular during the 18th century, when sentiment, both sorrowful and romantic, began to be expressed in a more allegorical style.  

This fantastic mourning ring has a little hand painted illustration of a gentleman at a grave with the inscription, "We Shall Meet Never To Part".  The wistful pose and the poignant words are preserved under glass, a reminder of the love one lost so long ago, with the promise of reuniting after death.
