Victorian jewelry is as complex in its symbolism, sentiment, and design as the fashion, architecture, and decor of the time. Worn as an ornament, a love token, or a remembrance, jewelry not only completed the well-dressed lady’s costume but also denoted her position in society, her marital status, and her sense of self.
Wild and adorable, pansies were jubilantly translated into jewelry throughout the Victorian era. The pansy became one of the widely used motifs in Victorian jewelry and was widely known to symbolize thoughts of love and remembrance. This dainty example features an antique stick pin top-mounted on an antique signet ring and makes an adorable addition to any ring stack.
