Step back in time and uncover the enduring charm of seashells. These delicate treasures have been symbols of good luck, intricate decorations, and even currency throughout history. During the Victorian era, sailors crafted exquisite mosaics from seashells encased within octagonal wooden frames on the shores of Barbados. Imagine the anticipation and longing as whalemen returned from their lengthy voyages, presenting these sailors' valentines to their distant loves.
Inspired by these tales of love and craftsmanship, Melissa has reimagined the original sailor's valentines as exquisite fine jewelry. Here, history and artistry intertwine, and seashells find new life in silver and gold. Wear a piece of history, luck, and love beautifully reimagined.
