    This beautiful brooch features a Lover’s Eye rimmed by a motif of red and pearl.  The Lover's Eye was a popular gift during 18th century England, most expressing devotion between loved ones or in memory of the deceased.  All were intimate and exceedingly precious: eyes painted on bits of ivory no bigger than a pinky nail, then set inside ruby-garlanded brooches, pearl-encrusted rings, or ornate golden charms meant to be tucked into pockets or pinned close to the heart.

    As objects, lover’s eyes are mesmerizing—and bizarre. Part-portrait, part-jewel, they resist easy categorization.

    Jewelry designer Jill Schwartz of Elements combines unique combinations of vintage and modern elements inspired by her love of antiques, fashion, and travel. Made in Massachusetts.
