Coquille Lilas Valentine Necklace - Vintage Sailorís Valentine Pocket Watch with Pink Amethyst Nuggets and Freshwater Pearls|
The Sailorís Valentine originated as a way for sailors to not only express their love for wives and family, but to also while away the endless days at sea. Fashioned from varieties of colorful shells found during their travels, these beautiful mosaics were originally housed in wooden boxes and covered in glass. I first became aware of these highly collectible works of art early during our 10 year sojourns to Nantucket for the summer. Imagine my delight in finding these miniature versions of Sailors Valentines encased in vintage pocket watches! An exquisitely detailed scrimshaw depicting a tall ship is the focal point of this unique pocket watch Sailorís Valentine. This magnificent ship is surrounded by a painstaking arrangement of the most miniature shells in lavender, ivory and black. A chain of gorgeous faceted pink amethyst nuggets with hand-coiled loops are interspersed with delicate hand-linked ivory freshwater pearls and additionally - with acknowledgement to the bounty of the sea - stunning lavender freshwater pearls. These are truly one-of-a-kind designs that will amaze your friends! 26Ē long with 3.50Ē pendant drop.
