About

The ultimate romantic and haunting "Lover's Eye" piece of jewelry: a figural heart-shaped drop, embracing a finely drawn enamel eye, surrounded by seed pearls, and suspended with two fine chains from a pearl bale. The hinged compartment in the back contains a braided lock of hair. 15K yellow gold. The Lover's Eye tradition is beloved as the representation of the intimate connection between two people.

Alice Kwartler has sold the finest antique gold and diamond jewelry and silver for over 40 years.
