This dainty and sweet necklace is a throwback to the romance and tragedy of one’s loved one going off to war. The double heart piece was a common memento sent home to a sweetheart, with names engraved...in this case it was Tom & Bessie, and the United States Navy emblem is in the center. The gold filled locket with initials S+S can be used for your own picture. The “I love mom” charm and Victorian era bib pin add just a bit more detail and interest to this necklace. Hello Sailor indeed !
If you are old enough to remember, you may have heard the clickety clack of your parents’ or grandparents’ typewriter. It was a rare treat indeed if you were allowed to push those stiff keys yourself! The symbols of Love are stacked in this lovely necklace (sure to be a conversation piece) ! X=Kiss, O=Hug. Show someone you care about how you feel....or better yet, show yourself some love.

In the 1930’s Cat-eye glasses are born after Altina Schinasi walked by an optician’s office and noticed the lack of stylish options for women. Inspired by the masks that Schinasi saw in Venice, Italy, she designed glasses with exaggerated framing around the eyes. After being turned down by multiple opticians, she finally gained a fan in one glasses boutique in New York City. During the 1940’s - early 1960’s the now famous frames started to be referred to as the “Harlequin.” The trend was a rectangle lens with a thick frame, a slight uplift at the sides, and small details at the corners such as little gold stars.
As fabulous as these are, it only made sense that they should transcend from eye jewelry into “traditional” jewelry! A fun conversation piece, connection to a favorite Aunt, Mom or Grandmother or just because you are an individual with style...this necklace is guaranteed to bring joy!
Imagine the lady who carried this tiny purse...was it for a bus token? Maybe she never left her home without a spare coin. Regardless it is a precious item that can hold something special to you. The PAX pin back is from the early 1900’s. The paper label from inside this pin has been preserved on the back side of the watch. The wind up watch does work, however, may not keep accurate time. A sweet little piece... Sweet Peace indeed.
