VictorianMilk Tooth in Ornate Floral Mountingwith Rose Cut Diamonds

$1,800

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 (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 floral mounting accented by 14 sparkly rose cut diamonds. Hangs from a new 18" 14k gold chain.
