This pendant is a rare survival from the Georgian period. It contains two hearts set with red jasper and lapis lazuli. Red jasper is a stone of passion and a token of all who consummate love. Lapis lazuli is a stone of truth and encourages honesty of the spirit in the spoken and written word. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships. There are three tiny gold keys which symbolise “Keys to your heart” and a tiny heart set with a diamond to “Hold you always”. The stones and the sentiments were especially chosen for this tiny work of art which was originally a gift of love.
