    £22.99 Members' price *


    An attractive gold pendant inspired by a Medieval gold ring brooch, sometimes called the Lovers' brooch.

    The original brooch is set alternately with rubies and sapphires. It was a lover's gift; the reverse has the old French inscription 'Io sui ici en lui dami: Amo' – 'I am here in place of the friend I love'. The brooch is likely to have been made in England and dates to the 13th century.

    Moulded from the original in the Department of Prehistory and Europe.
