Georgian Eye Jewellery; 1790-1820

“Eye miniatures came into fashion at the end of the 18th century. In France, where eye miniature seems to have originated, the eye as symbol of watchfulness was adopted by the state police for buckles and belts. In Britain it had a role as a love token, with some eye miniatures glistening with a trompe-l’oeil tear, or a diamond set to imitate a tear. Most eye miniatures are unsigned, due to the minuteness of the background, and often the name of the person whose eye is depicted is unknown.”

- Victoria and Albert Museum

I love Lovers Eye jewelry, it wasn’t always the eye of a lover, sometimes it would be a mother, child, sibling, or friend, I actually love Lovers Eyes so much I had a friend paint one for me to wear in my Georgian era choker for when I am in my fancy dresses when reenacting
