Victorian Love Tokens - a Timeless Expression of Devotion

Please Note: This is an authentic Hand-Carved Victorian Love Token, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

Love tokens are one of the most fascinating types of coins to collect. While tokens of love can be traced back thousands of years, the use of coins as tokens of affection, religious pledges or for good luck overlaps, but seems to date back to the 13th Century. 


The criteria for a love token is that it must be a coin of the realm and that it be hand engraved. At least one side has been smoothed and engraved with a message. The term “love token” can also be misleading as engraved coins were also used to commemorate special events, such as births and deaths.

Our love tokens harken back to the Victorian era, when they became an artistic and beautiful way to express love and affection. Here, the love for Mother is set in a timeless expression of devotion.

Robert's Notes: This feminine love token may once have been part of a bracelet - where family names and titles would have been looped together as a family heirloom. We've repurposed the extra hole for a sparkly Swarovski crystal accent.
