The Memorial Tear® 10K Gold Lapel Pin features a high-polished 10K gold teardrop and rose. The teardrop symbolizes loss and grief; the rose represents undying love for one gone but cherished still. Wear this lapel pin as a cherished memory or give it to a friend or family member as a heartfelt gift. Every piece of jewelry includes an insert card that reads: "This is a teardrop to be worn in memory of someone loved. The rose is a symbol of of love that never ends. 1 Corinthians 13: 8,13."
Story About The Design
Several years ago I went through a lengthy period of grief. One morning I sat in my studio to draw and realized I was sketching a tear drop. I drew a rose in the center as a symbol of my love, then made the design into a pendant. Over time, the Memorial Tear® has become more than a symbol of love and loss. It now reminds me of a great and consoling truth, “love never ends”. (1 Corinthians 13: 8, 13).
