My daughter wanted to help with the hand shots. (Swipe to see the actual one we'll use!) #futurehandmodel #fidrajewellers #emerald #emeraldring

I bought a cute new thing! Never seen anything quite like it. It's not in perfect condition but it's adorable! Blue enamel ivy leaves and forget-me-nots (there is a leaf and possibly a flower missing on the left with a bit of a dodgy lead repair) with black enamel and seed pearls. I haven't found a mark (stamp or otherwise) on it, but looks to be 15ct, though I'll double check later.
I love the symbolism in Victorian pieces. Ivy signified the bonds of marriage and fidelity, forget-me-nots are as their name suggests, seed pearls for tears.
Blue enamel was often used for royalty, or for someone who was considered royal, a dearly loved one. "...the forget-me-nots entered into the public mind during the 15th century through fable. “Forget-me-not, O Lord!” is what a German knight shouted as he fell into a river. He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time, no doubt enjoying the beautiful day around them, and yet as fate would have it, the knight’s armour dragged him down to the bottom as he fell in. Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one and promptly drowned. This little tale reportedly dates to around the 15th century, but no doubt had different permeations along the way, as romantic stories often do. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this." Courtesy Hayden, #artofmourning .
I'm enjoying pondering who this piece may have been for... #mourningjewelry #mourningjewellery #mourning #forgetmenot #ivy #ivyleaves #family #marriage #15ct #antiquejewelry #mourningjewellery #sentimentaljewellery #sentimentaljewelry #enamel #blueenamel #seedpearls #antiquependant #mourningpendant #instagood #instadaily
