A beautiful impression of sheet music under the thoughtful sentiment REMEMBER ME wax seal necklace pendant ... used for its intended purpose, to seal a letter closed with wax, it was likely a message from a loved one who is far away but now as a wax seal necklace it might also be a keepsake of remembrance and love in times of grief.
Meaningful remembrance wax seal jewelry.

I presume the antique wax seal represents a song REMEMBER ME during the 19th century but I wasn't able to find one dating before 1840, when this antique seal originated.

Impressed and hand crafted from a Victorian (1840) glass block wax seal that's part of a romantic handcrafted turned ivory stacking tower of glass intaglio seals. The last photos depict the wax seal set and wax seal necklace charms made from the wax seals in the set.

There were many REMEMBER ME songs over the years and also a beautiful short poem by Margaret Mead:
To the living, I am gone,
To the sorrowful, I will never return,
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot speak, but I can listen.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore gazing at a beautiful sea,
As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity,
Remember me in your heart:
Your thoughts, and your memories,
Of the times we loved,
The times we cried,
The times we fought,
The times we laughed.
For if you always think of me, I will never have gone.
Impressed with history!
