Story

Acrostic jewelry is sentimental in nature. Believed to have first appeared during the eighteenth century, the trend continued well into the early years of the twentieth century. Read much like a poem, gems were used to speak from the heart and soul. The first letter of the names of the stones encoded or “spelled out” a word or phrase.

Here the iconic heart in the guise of an 18k yellow gold locket communicates the word “DEAREST” around a centered diamond. This is utilizing two (2) round brilliant cut diamonds total weight of .10 carats, G-H color, VS clarity. Also it is set with two (2) emeralds, one ruby, one amethyst, one sapphire and a tourmaline, each approximately .04 carats.

The gems are set on the front of the bulbous locket in a flower cluster formation with the first letter of each stone conveying the sweet sentiment. A heart shaped carved rock crystal back Allows the contents to show.
