As the story goes - Sailor’s Valentines originated as a way for sailors to not only express their love for wives and family, but to also wile away the endless days at sea. Fashioned from varieties of colorful shells found during their travels, these beautiful mosaics were originally housed in wooden boxes and covered in glass. In reality - these gorgeous works of art were most likely purchased in Barbados where the shell mosaics were part of a booming cottage industry. I first became aware of these highly collectible works of art during our 10 year sojourns to Nantucket for the summer.

An exquisitely detailed Corian® scrimshaw of a full sail tall ship, is the focal point of this unique Sailor’s Valentine pocket watch. A painstaking arrangement of micro shells in iridescent ivory and aqua blue, reminds us of the exotic origins of these petite little shells. Blue flash labradorite step-faceted nuggets with hand-coiled loops are interspersed with freshwater baroque pearls on a gorgeous hand-linked chain of smooth aqua chalcedony rondelles.

In addition to the unique antique Sailor’s Valentine pocket watch, a generous amulet of aqua flash labradorite is joined with a gold vermeil compass rose and winged swallow charms - to remind us of the romantic origins of this charming art.

These necklaces are truly one-of-a-kind designs that will mesmerize your friends!

30 inches long / 4 inch pendant drop X 1.89 inches diameter.
