A tear bottle is a tradition of shared emotion and transformed relationships that has been around for three millennia. The tear bottle is given to honour and cherish another person. One of the first references to the tear bottle is present in Davidâ€™s Psalm 56:8. During ancient Roman times mourners captured their tears and buried them with loved ones to show respect and affection. During Victorian times mourners would capture their tears in the bottle and once they evaporated bereavement would be over, but the bottle would remain as an eternal symbol of devotion. In modern times tear bottles are used to express several sentiments such as joy at a wedding, birthday, or anniversary. Also to express heartache upon the end of a relationship, news of illness, or loss of a loved one. This cherished and timeless tradition lives on with the same reverence as when it first began making this a truly special item.
