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. With fitted box.
