    It looks like an amulet or pendant to me. Aromatic jewelry is often sold empty; the buyer fills it with their own perfume.

    Those are beautiful!!!! Wouldn't the metal change the scent though? (chemically react with it?)

    I thought glass was the best thing to store fragrances in, since it's non-permeable, doesn't leach and is pretty much inert.

    I don't know how much crosses over, but in other fields there are some issues.
    In pharmacy, we can't use aluminum hub needles with all drugs due to chemical interaction. Stainless steel is considered fine in all instances for the short time it takes to compound a drug.
    In cooking, aluminum is a great conductor but for items with proteins like milk or eggs stainless steel or glass is used.
    This leads me to believe that if a vessel were stainless steel that it would be okay for use, at least for awhile. Would I use metal to carry my frags? -I can only see it as practical where glass would break, like backpacking or rock climbing. But I don't wear fragrances when I engage in those activities so...

    They are very lovely but I don't think they are very valuable, although in saying that, I have never seen one on a brooch before, only on a chain. I have one similar for a chain.

    And of course I cannot find mine anywhere to photograph it for you.....

    but I found the one referred to with the blue stone on ebay
