What You Should Know: a sweet little charm!

There is a medieval legend that tells the tale of a knight who’s last act of love inspired jewelry for centuries to come. He was picking flowers along the riverfront with his lover when he slipped into the rushing waters. Before his heavy armor sunk him into the depths, he tossed her a fistful of tiny blooms, exclaiming “Forget me not!”. From that day forward, tiny 5 petaled flowers that grew near the water were lovingly called Forget-me-nots. 

During the Georgian and Victorian Eras, forget-me-not symbolism was often incorporated into jewelry. The sentimentality of the time paired with nature-inspired motifs created the perfect setting to forget me not jewelry to thrive. 

This special little pendant was crafted during the 18th century, in a classic forget-me-not shape. An emerald, ruby, opal, turquoise, and garnet make up the petals while an old mine cut diamond sits both center and above. Each stone is set in sterling silver, the traditional technique of the time. We strung this pendant along an adjustable 14k gold chain- the perfect addition to the sweetest little notion of love.
