Straight from the heart, for the soft-hearted, empathetic and kind, a bleeding heart wax seal necklace charm in 14k gold vermeil, the all seeing eye with 6 tears, sits over the bleeding heart with two downward pointing arrows piercing the heart crosswise and 5 droplets of blood below it - thus, the bleeding heart.

Impressed from a small silver wax seal that dates back to the late medieval age in the early 1600's, a popular motif in the 17th century.
Gold vermeil is a technique of plating that was developed by French artisans in the 18th century.
This high quality plating adds a thick layer of gold, in this case 2.5 microns of 14k gold, over .925 sterling silver.
It’s crafted only using precious metals so it is more hypoallergenic.
Care: it should be stored it in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.
As with all jewelry, remove before bathing or applying perfume as this can cause dullness.
The necklace chains are available here.
