Lover's Eye jewelry was created in the Georgian period (late-1700s) as a way to honor and be close to one's love without having to give away his or her identity. The theory being that only a lover could identify the object of his or her affection solely by the eyes. Most examples of this type feature just one eye, and pieces with two eyes are rare.

Queen Victoria brought the fad back nearly a hundred years later and commissioned lover's eye pieces of her children, friends, and favorites.

This piece, impossible to date but possibly Georgian (it's backed, as was nearly all Georgian jewelry), is made of 14K yellow gold and has a beautifully painted partial portrait of an anonymous woman held under beveled glass.

Jewelry is meant to be worn, but it's also an expensive ornament. Here are a few helpful suggestions to extend the life of your jewelry:

  • We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or your trusted local jeweler every six months.
  • You should remove your rings before swimming or performing any household cleaning, as harsh chemicals can interact with precious metals and permanently damage some stones.
  • Generally, we suggest that you do not wear your jewelry to the gym, in the shower, or while sleeping.

We do not believe in selling something we cannot service. Should an issue arise, please get in touch. We offer an extensive range of repair services and are here to help!
