The black rose first originated from China and started being used in the West during the Victorian era, in which it was extremely popular. In Victorian times, black roses were given as gifts to lovers or family members. It is widely believed that the black rose was used as a symbol of mourning when it was presented to widows by their family and friends after their husbands had died from war or other causes. Over time, the popularity of the black rose faded until it was seen as more of an accessory and less of a symbol, although this still depends on its use and country of origin.
