Love and Death: Sentimental Jewelry in the Time of Jane Austen

Presented by: JASNA-Minnesota

10:00am CST - 11:30am CST

The ordinary people of Jane Austen’s time often wore a sentimental type of jewelry, which was accessible and inexpensive. The sentiment of such jewelry fell into two categories: the sentiment of love and the sentiment of death. In this presentation, Candice will explore both types, including symbols and iconography of mourning and of romance, all of which would have been well understood by people of the time.

Candice’s Powerpoint presentation will include lots of detailed images of mourning jewelry and love tokens from museums, including a mourning brooch with a lock of Jane Austen’s hair from the Jane Austen’s House Museum, as well as many examples from her own collection, including lover’s eyes, such as the one shown here. Items from her collection will be on display for attendees to examine.

Event location and price to be determined. Check back closer to the event for details.
