In the 1800's, sailors established a tradition of giving their sweethearts exotic shell art when returning from long voyages at sea. Sailors would commission artisans to create sentimental messages of love using beautiful tiny seashells. Sailor's Valentines were purchased from specialty merchants typically located in Barbados. A true sailor's valentine was said to include a flower design, a heart in any form, and a special verse or message.
