A terrible, tragic true story is told in this necklace, one of the blush of youth, love gone wrong, a door opened to another life, being forced to walk the night streets, and finally, murder at the hands of the most notorious serial killer of all time. Whomever he was, Jack the Ripper murdered Mary Jane Kelly, a young Welsh girl, in her boarding room at 13 Miller's Court, just off Dorset Street, in the London borough of Spitalfields (adjacent to Whitechapel) in the fall of 1888. Many argue he was her final victim. She may have suffered most of all his victims. Nonetheless, her life's story has been subsumed in the gaudy infamy her death aroused. By most accounts, she had a spirit that, while trampled upon by the harshness of the East End, never disappeared. Her life was short and ended badly, but those who knew her remember how she loved to laugh and sing, even when times were hard.
