Lover's Eyes: hand-painted portraits on ivory which were popular in England between the 1780s and 1830s. usually a literal portrait of a lover's eye, could be worn while keeping your lover's identity secret. the "single eye also symbolized the watchful gaze of a jealous partner, who feared that his or her lover might stray."
