Motherhood was considered to be women's highest achievement throughout the 19th century, and was idealized as the ultimate emotional and spiritual fulfillment. While this notion is quite out to date, we all know the important role our mothers played in our lives, and how much they gave up for us.
This beautiful love token features a secret message in the form of an acrostic - a word spelled out using the first letter of each stone read clockwise - Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby or Dear. A perfect present to show your mama how DEAR she is to you.
This love token is on a 1885 US dime, approximately 17.3 mm in diameter and is set in a gold bezel with an openable bale.
