Gold Memorial Jewelry to Honour a Child

Mourning jewelry has been in existence since ancient times when gold rings were often placed in burial tombs along with the deceased, but it was really in Victorian times that mourning jewelry became extremely popular.  Rings were the most common form, often containing a lock of hair.  Nowadays there is a large range of gold jewelry from which to choose.  We have chosen a few of the most beautiful examples we could find here.  Click on the photos to find out more.

We are two bereaved parents who have teamed up with researchers at Yeshiva University and Memorial Sloan Kettering to study how the death of a child impacts parents’ lives, and the resulting ripple effects as life continues without our children. We invite you to participate in a survey which will help us develop resources to better support parents experiencing the heartbreak of child loss.

For mothers or fathers who have lost a child (or children) of any age, and would like to make a contribution to our understanding of bereaved parenthood, this is a way to make a difference.

If you would like to participate in our study, please fill out this confidential survey at It will take about 20 minutes.

For more details, you can contact the Principal Investigator:

Kailey Roberts, PhD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University.
