Story

Today the language of symbol and sentiment is all but lost. Used throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, enigmatic meanings have been assigned to any number of flower and foliate objects to in an unspoken manner communicate feelings and sentiments.

The pansy is one such example which used extensively employed during the Georgian sentimental era (1810-1840). The word itself is believed be a distortion of pronunciation of the French word “pensee” for thought. The flower itself soon became synonymous with the phrase “thinking of you” and thus began a century of gesture as sentiment.

Bright flat cut natural almandine garnets set into 9k rose gold have been formed into five petal pansy flowers and joined one to the other with a grouping of three – two small round and a larger oval shape. The sensuous necklace remains a superb example even after almost two hundred years with all of the garnets still fiery, warm and brilliant. The closed back settings lie flat against the neck and assure a sensuous draping.

Date: Circa 1820.
