My heart = mush


Have you ever seen a piece of mourning jewelry so sweet and tender? The little white hair bows and the seed pearls are so lovely. It was made 220 years ago and it is in perfect condition. The price tag seems absolutely reasonable to me - $2400, or about $10 for each year it has survived.

I'm always amazed when things last this long. Even the engraving hasn't worn out. Beautiful!
