Fuchsia flower necklace in bronze

Fuchsia {Refinement}
During the Victorian era flowers often bore hidden messages to those who received them.
Sentiments such as longing, bashfulness, and true love could be conveyed through the flowers given & received.

Handcrafted from the impression of an early 19th century French wax seal set, this pendant features the gorgeous Fuchsia, which in the language of flowers signifies 'Refinement'

During the late 1780's the Fuchsia made one of its earliest appearances at Kew Gardens in England, which started a craze for this gorgeous flowering bush. The first wave of plants sold for between £10 to £20 each, while at the time a maid generally earned between £11-14 per annum. Only the richest could afford these plants, which is why it symbolizes refinement.

Size approx: 3 /4" x 3/4" (18mm x 20mm)

About Bronze
Bronze jewelry has a warm luster and a lovely rich antique gold color. Over time it will form a dark patina, this gives each piece its own individual, organic, and antiqued finish. If you prefer you can always bring back its original shiny finish with a jewelry polishing cloth.

Each Plum and Posey wax seal design arrives accompanied by it's own meaning card, and tucked into an elegant jewelry bag ready for gift giving.

PLEASE NOTE: Before you order please check sizing information - it can be hard to gauge jewelry sizes from pictures alone. On some of the seal pieces the text is so small as to be read only with a magnifying glass making the meaning a secret between you and those you choose to tell.
