Big. Bold. Beautiful.

This oversized nephrite heart hails from Victorian England She's a beautiful deep shade of green nephrite, hand carved into a softly rounded heart shape.

The shield-shaped cartouche on the front is made of 9k gold and is inscribed with the note--AJ, from the boys.

Makes me wonder who AJ was and who the boys were--her sons, her husband and son, her students, her team mates...

Whoever they were, it's a beautiful window into their little love story.

Style Tips:
Obviously this beauty has enough presence to hold her own. I'd wear her short inside a collared shirt or V-neck. On a slightly heavier chain to balance out her dramatic proportions.

Design Details:
* Victorian English Nephrite Heart Pendant
* 14 rose gold cartouche with inscription
* 14k rose gold ring to wear on a chain
* 2 inches tall including ring, 1.5 inches wide
* Excellent condiiton
