Belle Èpoque Milk Teeth Ring


The use of baby teeth (or "milk teeth") in jewelry was briefly popular in the very late 19th and very early 20th centuries. The people of this time were a sentimental and not-too-squeamish bunch and, as such, they commissioned jewelry made from these tiny treasures to celebrate a landmark moment - the loss of one's baby teeth aka the survival of early childhood. This strikingly modern-looking ring features a pair of bezel-set milk teeth which have been filed into soft triangle shapes. French hallmark.
