This c.1820 rendering of an oval emerald with pearly circlet (seed pearls set in between the larger natural pearls) were a popular format in Regency and Gregorian times. The ornately carved tapered yellow gold shank beautifully demonstrates the techniques and design choice of this era. https://www.facebook.com/ganoksin/photos/a.95571724683.85907.95248529683/10154283509954684/?type=3
Lover’s eyes are hand-painted portraits on ivory which were popular in England between the 1780s and 1830s. The history of this jewelry style is as juicy as the paintings are gorgeous. Since romantic love didn’t typically exist within the confines of a marriage at this point in history, affairs were pretty common. So how would you show your loyalty to your lover? By wearing a sentimental portrait of an unidentifiable part of their person, of course.
