Early 20th Century Baby Tooth Pendant

$1,500

The use of baby teeth (or "milk teeth") in jewelry has nothing to do with mourning. Quite the opposite - during the last centuries, it was worth celebrating if your child survived long enough to lose her first teeth. Thus, the Victorians and early Edwardians (a sentimental and not-too-squeamish bunch) commissioned jewelry made from these tiny treasures. This unusual, exquisite pendant features a milk tooth in a detailed gold mounting accented by 4 sparkly single cut diamonds.
