Lover's Eyes Turquoise Scrimshaw Earrings


Two striking eye motifs are hand-scribed into the surface of these perfectly-hued Kingman turquoise droplets. Inspired by the Eighteenth Century fashion of wearing an amulet painted only with the eye of one’s lover—a discreet gesture of love at a time when outward expressions of romance were frowned upon.
