Story

Across time two birds of love kiss. Their devotion to each other is now eternal. It sparks the imagination to find something this old and ephemeral has come down to us through the centuries. Under faceted rock crystal are ring necked doves; all enameled with tiny black dots around their neck and in white and gray with rose pink eyes, their feet are firmly planted on a yellow and white ground in high carat gold.

Beneath the birds is a cypher (initials) of “HNE” and then a ground of brown plaited hair. The crystal is set in the characteristic rub-over scalloped bezel. In addition, the back has a typical radiating line pattern often seen on the reverse of rings and other jewelry. Stuart crystals are usually oval or geometric; this is a rare heart shape.
