Sailor's Valentine Earrings
These sterling silver sailor's valentine's earrings feature a 14k gold scallop shell centerpiece.
Each earring measures approximately 16mm across.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, sailors would bring home treasured gifts for their loved ones, called Sailor's Valentines. These pieces of art were handcrafted, intricate designs of small sea shells, set in an octagonal box.
Our Sailor’s Valentine jewelry is designed to resemble these beautiful seashell collages of the past. They are worn as a symbol of love, devotion, and being apart - yet always together in heart.
