Lovers Eye Scimshaw Earrings


Two striking eye motifs are hand-scribed into the surface of these clean white Quahog shell 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.

  • Quahog shell
  • Oxidized sterling silver
  • Measure 1 7/16″ x 1/2″ including earwire
