Many families followed Victorian mourning customs in the mid-1800s. Mourning periods varied based on one's relation to the deceased. While these periods were characterized mainly by mourning garb, photographs and jewelry, like this locket, also served as mementos of the deceased. (Source: Matthew R. Gross and Elizabeth T. Lewin, 2010)
