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 their first teeth. Thus, we occasionally find specially commissioned jewelry made from these tiny treasures. This petite pendant is made in gold with a single, tiny pearly white.
