Oculus Four Card
When the Prince of Wales (later King George IV) wanted to woo his estranged lover back, he sent her a miniature painting of his eye with the note: “P.S. I send you a parcel, and I send you at the same time an eye. If you have not totally forgotten the whole countenance, I think the likeness will strike you.” After that, bejewelled Lover's Eyes were worn as a symbol of loyalty and devotion to the person whose eye adorned the tiny painting.
