The secret history of 'lover's eyes'  In the 18th and 19th centuries, wealthy British and European lovers exchanged “eye miniatures” — love tokens so clandestine that even now, in the majority of cases, it is impossible to identify their recipients or the people they depict.  Experts believe that there are fewer than 1,000 “lover’s eyes” in existence today.   Apparently, they were meant to be worn inside the lapel, near the heart.
