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.
