The Love Token Society has launched a new website, www.lovetokensociety.com, to take the place of its former site that is set to expire.
The new site features past articles from the Love Letter newsletter, a history section, a love token jewelry section, and the “Report a Love Token” form and image sections.
A highlight of the website is the jewelry section, which showcases antique photographs of people wearing love token jewelry alongside current images of the jewelry itself. The old photographs are scarcer than the jewelry they depict, the group says.
The “Report a Love Token” section is a venue in which users can share their love tokens with fellow collectors. In addition to the section serving as a means for exhibiting collections, it will also function as a databank for known love tokens. The form can be accessed by both Love Token Society members and the general public.
Submitted love token images that are “unusual and interesting” will be selected and added to the Reported Images page, according to the society. Love tokens are one of a kind, so sharing images is of great importance for people to see what is out there, it says.
The site is launched but will continue to be in a development phase as new images and articles are submitted.
