Large Contemporary Lover's Eye Gold Ring
Lover's Eye Rings became popular in the Georgian period.
Affluent individuals would commission hand painted miniatures which were encased into precious pieces of jewellery worn as secret valentines to their lovers. Often only the possessor and the portrait subject would know of the existence.
We have created this beautiful ring encasing a copy of an original hand painted Georgian eye into an Antique 9ct gold bezel repurposed from a Victorian brooch and using the original glass. The mount has been set onto a gold band.
