Winter Wonderland Sailors Valentine

Across centuries, seashells have held roles as bearers of fortune, adornment, and even a form of currency.

These tokens, crafted during prolonged sea journeys, became cherished gifts for loved ones after prolonged absences. Inspired by this tradition, Melissa has ingeniously transformed the classic sailor’s valentines into stunning pieces of high-end jewelry. Features of this piece include:
