The Turquoise Love Token Necklace. Circa 1878. Love tokens originated in Great Britain as early as the 13th century with the practice of bending coins. The token, adorned with embellishment, was given from one to another for a plethora of reasons. Some tokens were, as the title states, given as a symbol of love. Others were used to denote milestones and good memories. This became a craze amongst school girls in the Victorian Era, as their beau was to give them a token symbolizing commitment to wear around the neck or arm.
