A touch of romance

Valentine’s day is coming, so I chose 3 images in which romance meets the body/academia.

1820-30s Georgian Turquoise and Blonde Hair Sentimental Ring      I always love the use of turquoise in Georgian sentimental jewelry.  It was a symbol for love, and was used both as a romantic gesture, and for mourning purposes when a loved one died.  It’s especially poetic: love and sorrow as one.  About 20 to 30 years after this ring was made, mourning jewelry became much more sombre.:
