This pretty rose gold French Amatory jewel features a background of brunette hair with the initials "AC" spelled out in seed pearls over the hair. Surrounding the crystal-covered hair are cushion cut crystals, each one hand cut precisely to fit within the frame. These love tokens were in fashion in the late 18th Century, they were usually made in England to suit French tastes. Similar examples can be seen on page 146 of the Georgian Jewellery book, dating it to the 1790s.
