It’s FRIDAY FASHION FACT! Today we are discussing another very specific
piece of fashion history: Lover’s Eye Jewelry. Much like hair jewelry
(which I discuss here) while the concept may seem very foreign to us
today, these pieces were highly valued and treasured keepsakes.
concept of lover’s eye jewelry, known in it’s time as eye miniatures,
is pretty obvious. Lover’s would commission miniature portraits of just
their eyes. The portraits would be incorporated into all types of
jewelry, such as brooches, necklaces, and bracelets. They were seen as
much more intimate than a typical portrait. Since the portrait focused
solely on that one feature, only those closest to the portrait’s subject
would be able to identify
to whom the eye belonged. This meant that eye portraits were rarely
turned into lockets, as was common with typical miniature portraits. The
anonymity of eye portraits also caused these miniatures to develop a
a reputation of being exchanged between forbidden loves, whether the
star-crossed lovers, those in the midst of scandalous affairs, or even
men and their mistresses.
Eye miniatures were also seen as
especially intimate because of how personal eyes themselves are. As we
have all heard, “the eyes are the window to the soul.”
a romantic piece of jewelry deserves an equally romantic story to
accompany it. While no one is certain where eye miniatures got their
start, it was the tale of a forbidden love between a prince and a
commoner which sparked the trend’s popularity. In the 1780s, the future
King George IV fell head over heals in love with commoner Maria
Fitzherbert. She was 6 years his elder, twice widowed, and, most
controversial in Britain at the time, Catholic. Both knew that the
relationship would never be approved of by the King, George III, and so
Maria resisted. Yet the Prince of Wales (George IV) persisted, and Maria
fell for him in return. She presented the Prince with an eye miniature
pin, which it was rumored he wore hidden under his lapel. The two were
wed in secret, yet the marriage was never recognized as valid by the
British government. Likely due to the rejection from King George III,
the two separated in the 1790s. George went on to marry another (the
full story is fascinating- I recommend reading up on it.) However,
on George IV’s deathbed, he requested to be buried along with Maria’s
eye miniature, a wish that was granted.
remained popular through the early Victorian Age. Mystery shrouds most
surviving examples, as it is nearly impossible to identify the eye
without solid provenance. Though they fell from popularity, lover’s eye
jewelry never disappeared completely, and are still created on the rare
