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.
