Jewel of the day: Late Georgian Seed Pearl and Enamel Lovers Eye Pendant Brooch

Lovers’ eyes were a way of keeping your beloved (often a secret lover) close to you without revealing their identity. I find them utterly romantic and charming, and they are also fairly rare (and thus expensive).

This example from 1st Dibs is a dual pendant/brooch, testing as at least 12 karat yellow gold and is estimated to be late Georgian in date. It is selling for USD$3,495.
