Lover’s Eyes once were tiny personal portraits gifted to missed partners while on a journey in the 19th century. Originating in the Georgian period, these were commonly made. As time went on they became items worn by those in mourning, not only of lovers, but of family members. I created the ghostly eyes so they can be worn by anyone to represent those they miss, or mourn those that have been lost.
The bezels are made of zinc alloy, and is lead/nickle free. The zinc alloy will not rust, but it can oxidize in wet environments. Please store these pieces in a dry location to keep it from changing colors. The cabochon is made of glass, and prints are UV protected in archival glue.
