Georgian “Va ou je voudrois etre” Lyre Seal Necklace
We believe this says "go where I would like to be". The text arcs over a sealed letter, so this makes sense: I wish I was with you, in your hands. The intaglio, carved around 1820 in amethyst, was designed to stamp an envelope closed with hot wax.
10k gold (tests), amethyst seal, new 14k gold chain
