I Only Change In Death

A Victorian clear paste seal featuring imagery of a bay leaf and French text ‘Je ne change qu’en mourant’ (I only change in death).

Generously set in 14ct gold as our closed back classic pendant with a diddy EnaBailer.

Why we love it

First off we are nuts for a closed gold back on a clear paste seal, the way the reflections bounce and the light plays are just *chef’s kiss*. So there.

But on to the message; which also rocks! This is surely the ultimate talisman for authenticity.

Steady and reliable. Not prone to caprice. defo not a flibbertigibbet.

As solid as a rock.

Our kinda person.

Wear this pendant to embrace your natural candour if you find your authenticity is just inherently a part of who you are.

Alternatively this piece can serve most excellently as your daily wear reminder/mantra of the work you do towards always being your truest self.

Flown away home.
