Fantastic antique condition with minimal surface wear

Generously set in 18ct yellow gold

Why we love it

Who else looks at this and thinks The Sound of Music? Anyone? Oh come on, those angelic von Trapp children singing their little hearts out? Ok, just us then.

There’s no denying this is a stunning piece. The gorgeous shield shape and faceted back. The sun setting behind a mountain. The inscription bidding us farewell.

But what if it’s not actually saying goodbye? Yes we know that’s what it says but let’s exercise our poetic licence. What if this cheeky wee intaglio is meant to remind us life is short – a memento mori without the skeleton if you will? Seems plausible, right? So here’s what we think: be bold! Don’t dither around on the side-lines. Create. Love. Leap. Make mistakes then make some more. Caution be damned.

Game on people!

Flown away home.
