Georgian Era "Lover's Eye" Ornament

Regular price $80.00

Beautiful and unique holiday ornament in the style of a "Lover's Eye" - a jewelry tradition in the Georgian era that became the height of British fashion. Englishmen and women wore the mini portraits depicting their spouse's eye .. or secret lover's (since the tiny paintings only revealed an eye, their identities could remain secret). The eyes often graced rings, lockets, and more jeweled accessories. A mesmerizing and bizarre fad, with a distinct air of mystery.
