In the 18th and 19th centuries, wealthy british and european lovers exchanged ‘eye miniatures’ - love tokens so clandestine that even now it is almost impossible to identify their recipients or the people they depict. They were meant to be worn inside the lapel, near the heart. Only 1000 of these are known to exist

I had no idea there was antique eye jewelry out there! I want one desperately!

“Look of Love: Eye Miniatures from the Skier Collection”. Birmingham Museum of Art, Alabama    One of the oddest and most extraordinary forms of jewelry to emerge in the late 18th century was the eye miniature. A relatively little-studied subject, these hand-painted keepsakes—brooches, rings, lockets—featuring a depiction of a single human eye (usually a lover’s) were given as tokens of affection or remembrance.
