Edwardian Milk Tooth & Twisted Wire Necklace
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 his or her first teeth. This Edwardian pendant features a single tooth mounted in gold and suspended within a twisted wire circle.
18k gold (tests), milk tooth, new 14k gold chain
