Lover’s Eye Pendant, Carnelian Bead
Lover's Eye History
Star-crossed lovers must occasionally hide their glances in the dark.
In 1785, a young woman named Maria Fitzherbert opened a parcel containing the miniature portrait of her beloved's gaze wrapped by pearls, awaiting her answer to his proposal. She accepted at last, in spite of her status as a widow and his as a prince, and within the year he held her own eye in a locket close to his heart.
The Lover's Eye swept Europe for the next century, fitted with precious jewels, honoring adored ones both living and long-past.
Our design is one of careful thought and intention, fashioned in a brooch or pendant. While some eye/skin colors are always available to order, in line with the tradition we've commissioned a local artist for custom orders so that you might truly bear your lover's gaze for all the world to see.
