Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) in 1943. It is beloved even more today than when it was written. Ostensibly a children's book, there are so many instances in the writings that might be meant for adults to learn - perhaps to be young again.
This sweet little charm features the fox, who rightly explains an essential part of life to the Little Prince. The charm reads:
Adieu, dit le renard Voici mon secret Il est très simple on ne voit bien quavec le coeur Lessentiel est invisible pour les yeux.*Le Petit Prince
Goodbye, said the fox And now here is my secret a very simple secret It is only with the heart that one can see rightly what is essential is invisible to the eye.* The Little Prince
We love the offset nature of the quote and the fact that the charm features holes at the top and the bottom - so, it might act as a connector for an additional charm or bead at the bottom. On the back, the charm reads (beneath a simple star),
We're showing two charms to illustrate the front and back.
The charm is finished in an antiqued gold or bronze and measures 1-7/8 inch high - including the loop and 13/16 inch wide.
