A Love Poem, $39.90
Originally uploaded by Beads of Lav.

This versatile 24 inch necklace is an inspiration from the poem below by Elizabeth Browning who lived in the 1800s. I have to study this poem during my secondary school days and didn't quite appreciate it then. Now, when I look back, I'm glad I had to. :)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Anyway, this is made with a beautiful victorian style lady charm, vintage bronze leaf, red rose, green czech glass bead, a gold envelope charm which opens up to reveal a removable gold "I Love You" card, 14k gold-plated heart shaped clasp etc, this necklace can also be used as a bag charm. The chain used is 24k gold-plated. Only one is available.
