Georgian Lovers Eye jewelry from a private collection. Such jewels were also called “eye miniatures”. They became popular in the late 1700s. The Lovers’ Eye were watercolour on ivory depictions of the eye or eyes of a loved one or child. Very popular and a little bit bizarre-looking.
The shape on the left is called a “witch's heart” – this shape used as a talisman to ward off evil spirits. In Scotland, this same shape was called the “Luckenbooth”.

Striking Ukrainian jewelry pieces. These are vintage gold medallions called “dukach”. The medallions depict various religious scenes. They are also decorated with colorful glass beads and semi-precious stones (really expensive gems were rarely used). Such dukach jewels were hung around the neck with a ribbon.

Berber (Amazigh) women wear necklaces made from amber beads – often rather large ones. This material is rather valuable for Berbers. If to talk about precious metals, silver is the favorite one.
