Let the Season begin with magical, sacred beauty --
FRATERNAL TWINS OF SACRED SIMPLICITY
Two beautiful pieces of art & history featuring large hallmarked antique French sacred heart ex votos and miles of exquisite baroque pearls in two different colors and styles. These are substantial, very large pieces that make quite a statement in an elegant yet simple way.
Sacred Hearts originated in the 11th century and were most widely used during the 19th century in France and Italy as prayer and/or devotional items. Notes, prayers and devotions were placed inside and the reliquary was then hung on the wall in a church or home sanctuary with hope that the prayers would be answered and devotions acknowledged. These pieces are so special and are imbued with love and hope.
These two lovelies are available and can be seen in more detail in our JEWELRY SECTION.
Greyfreth jewelry is anchored with the highest quality treasures from eras past: relics, icons, jewels, sacred reliquaries, keepsakes, mementos -- sought out from the four corners of the world and from centuries ago. There is charm and a sense of mystery to their history - tokens that were once exchanged with love, perhaps held while promises were made, prayers were whispered over and secrets kept within. These pieces of the past are paired and bejeweled with finds such as ancient stones, minerals and metals from deep within the earth and natural gems and high grade pearls from the seven seas. Using time honored traditions in metal work and jewelry making, we bring you one of a kind, heirloom quality wearable pieces of both art and history... pieces you will enjoy giving or keeping, and loving for a lifetime.
