175.00

This filigree heart locket reminds that special someone that no matter what you face in life, love always triumphs in the end.

Inspired by popular poesy rings, or "poetry" rings, that were exchanged as wedding rings or tokens of friendship and affection from the 5th through the 15th centuries, this secret message locket necklace contains a hidden message only known to the giver and the recipient.    

This oval secret message locket is hand-wrought from sterling silver and adorned with a filigree heart that is crowned by a glowing red garnet, which is considered the gemstone of love.  Upon opening the locket, you reveal the hidden message that reads "amor vincit omnia," the classic Latin phrase taken from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, which means "love conquers all."  

The locket is oxidized to show detail and to give it a vintage look, and is suspended from a decorative 18 inch sterling silver chain by two round garnet stones.

Each locket comes with a small card enclosed in its jewel box that provides the translation of the hidden poesy message.
