Jewelry as a token of love

Giving gifts as a token of our affection is a long established ritual, and jewelry has always been one of the most popular gifts to give and to receive. However, our ancestors sometimes gave each other what may seem to us rather strange mementos. In the nineteenth century a lover’s lock of hair might be integrated into a piece of jewelry.
