Treasures for body and mind

Love This!

Antique carved labradorite salamander brooch, mounted in pink gold, the oval-shaped labradorite surrounded by entwined snake motifs set with rose-cut diamonds and sapphires, the snakes with rose-cut ruby eyes.

This gets better the longer I look at it.  Snakes symbolize eternal love, and salamanders are associated with fire and heat; was the intended sentiment, "I'm eternally hot for you?"
