Two gold amulets, one in the form of a heart locket, the other a miniature Torah pointer (Hebrew, yad). Apparently produced by the same jeweller, both are decorated with diamonds and ruby bands. Both are engraved with the Hebrew inscription "Shaddai" (one of the Judaic names of God, frequently used in amulets).
