Love Is Complicated IV: Isadora’s Fine Antique Jewelry

Symbolic and intellectual, antique jewelry is sexy and smart.

By Nico Ortega February 4, 2011


THE RELATIONSHIP ISSUE: Your sweetie is pretty deep. Symbolism makes him/her weak in the knees.

THE RESOLUTION: Intellectual antique jewelry.

THE EXPERT: Miko Premo at Isadora’s in downtown Seattle.

THE GIFT: Premo loves snake rings like the ones Queen Victoria and Prince Albert exchanged to symbolize eternal love. Lockets from the Victorian or Edwardian eras evoke a special kind of forever. They very literally convey a kind of close-to-the-heart love.
