Bleeding Love

A Victorian paste seal featuring imagery of a heart pierced by a dagger and French text ‘Dis Moi Oui’.

Our lapidary has created a mother of pearl doublet using this seal and an antique gaming taken to create this beautiful talisman which has such a pretty reverse side thanks to the antique gaming chip!

Generously set in 18ct yellow gold with a diddy EnaBailer and our signature hallmarking.

The dangle is a delicious ruby, long seen as a symbol of passion.

Why we love it

The literal translation of ‘Dis moi oui’ is ‘Tell me Yes’. However we would say the correct interpretation is more along the lines of an exasperated ‘Just say yes!’.

Combine that with the imagery of a dagger through a chubby heart and you get a real sense of drama going on here. The pain of love, the ups the downs, the will they/won’t they of a prospective partner who is indecisive.

And that is why we love this seal so. And, incidentally, this is a very rare motif. Emma snagged this knowing its scarcity and because she freaking loves it. It arrived as a damaged oval but we sent it off to our lapidary to rescue it and look at these mighty fine results! We love how the new shape is almost a heart itself, how fitting.

Think of the ruby as a drop of blood from a bleeding heart, that was Emma’s inspo for the design.

We think this piece says everything about unrequited love.  And just the rollercoaster ride of the whole damned love affair shooting match tbh.

Wear this talisman in recognition of the agony and the ecstasy of love.


Flown away home.
