Black Mourning Cockade

Mourning jewelry became popular in early Victorian America during the 19th century. It was worn in remembrance of, and to honor a deceased loved one. This became a common as well as fashionable practice, especially during the Civil War.

These black mourning ribbons were worn during the Civil War by family members to remember their lost loved ones here in Gettysburg and other battlefields. In most instances, a button from the soldier's coat was used with the ribbon for personalization.

Excellent hand made item July 6, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Brooklyn, NY United States  
Besides the super fast shipping, this item is well made. The hand craftsmanship can be seen throughout this small item. From the hand stitches to the "fray check" used to keep the ribbon ends from unraveling. An excellent purchase and a very satisfied customer
