English Georgian Pearl, Porcelain Enamel and Gold Pendant Necklace

An English Georgian 18 karat gold and porcelain enamel Lover's Eye pendant necklace with half pearls. The pendant necklace has 47 half pearls approximately 3 mm. in size surrounding the pendant. This unique pendant is composed of symbolic elements of memorial jewelry. In this piece, the pearl frame signifies tears, white -- a traditional memorial color -- is used heavily, and a bucolic garden -- yet another symbol of memorials -- is featured prominently. The flaming heart and the lover's eye denote a passionate love that had ended. As Ginny Dawes notes, "In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there was a fashion in love jewelry, for Memento Mori or 'vanitas' pieces which meant, literally, 'remember you must die'," and to memorialize the love that has departed.
