Victorian “Hours Pass, Friendship Remains” Seal Fob Necklace

Like a chunk of ice, this clear glass seal is cool and clear. The phrase "Le temps passe mais l'amitie reste" sounds so beautiful in French, but it's a sentiment that transcends boundaries of language and time. A dog - the much-deserved symbol of faithfulness - rests under a sundial and a smiling sun.
