Friendship French Wax Seal Necklace

$65.00 USD

Beautiful and completely unique necklace made from an antique wax seal.  This delicate and tiny fine silver pendant features the words "l'amitie" - friendship in French - with two birds and a wreath of forget-me-not flowers above them.  Very sentimental and intricate.

Available in both 16″ and 18″ sterling silver bead chains.

In the mid to late 1800’s in Britain, known as the Victorian era, jewelry was highly symbolic and sentimental.  One element of this was represented in jewelry men often wore, called fobs, a small ornament made of metal and natural stone that hung from a belt or at the waist.  On the stone was carved a message in reverse, which was then used to stamp wax on an outgoing letter, sealing it with that a message.  Each seal was unique, and many conveyed ideas of love, mortality, or even puzzles known as rebuses which spelled out a message to the reader through symbols.

Each of the fine silver pieces in the Stacey Fay Designs collection is made by hand using these antique fobs, bringing to life a long forgotten era of fashion and sentimentality.  The silver used to craft them is also eco-friendly, made from recycled metals.
