Sterling Silver Ribbon Threader
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.
Wearing a fern leaf pendant or fern jewelry is said to bring about a sense of magic and help with meditation & imagination. Fuschia indicates confiding love. So, generally, fuchsias are given as a way of expressing your trust in someone.
A gorgeous example featuring Fuschia flowers and fern leaves, this feminine example is in beautiful condition, with scrolled sides, and truly inhabits the space between functional object and antique jewel. The symbolism of Fuschia and fern is manyfold; creating a complex find for any jewelry lover.
