At the turn of the century, hair jewelry ceased to be popular. Oddly, for something that had been so popular, it completely disappeared from public view or even respectability. It was terrible timing, really, with WWI right around the corner. Perhaps that much death took the fun out of mourning.
Hair jewelry became a collector's oddity. A few Victorian historians and re-enactors kept the craft alive as well, usually adhering to historically accurate forms although this one is like none I have ever seen before.
