In 1861 when Queen Victoria's beloved husband, Prince Albert died, she was so overcome with grief she remained in mourning until her death in 1901. During this 40 year period, she wore all black attire, and her clothing buttons were made out of black Jet which were finely carved and quite expensive. As she greatly influenced fashion, the mourning gown became vogue, and a true fashion statement. Because Jet buttons were too expensive to produce for the average person, a button manufacturer in the 1860's recreated the black buttons and began producing them from glass. This made the buttons much more affordable, and they developed the name, "mourning buttons". These buttons were manufactured into the early 1900's.
