Even the most modest of items can carry immense meaning. Take the acorn, a seemingly small natural occurrence but powerful enough to change the world’s landscape. Ralph Waldo Emerson captured it perfectly when he wrote, “The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.”

For this reason, the Victorians assigned powerful symbolic meaning with tiny acorns. They represented many things- from youthfulness and prosperity to strength and stability. This Victorian Era acorn charm is crafted out of smooth black jet. Jet was a common material in the mid 19th century, when England was in a period of mourning after the passing of Prince Albert. When acorns are incorporated into mourning jewelry, as is the case with this piece, they take on a new meaning. They are used to embody immortality, longevity, an enduring presence. This jet charm was small reminder of a loved one who would never be forgotten for their lasting impact. Its a lifetime of significance in one small acorn.
