Did you know that the Victorians had a highly complex "language of flowers," where almost every conceivable sentiment corresponded with a type of flower? It wasn't limited to romantic notions—there were flowers corresponding with cleanliness (hyssop), temptation (quince) and—no joke—"paternal error" (cardamine). (What would that even entail? I am envisioning a Jerry Springer paternity test situation. Yikes.) All that being said, I am unable to decode the abstracted leaf-like pattern that adorns this late 19th-century 14K rose gold wedding band. You can download the complete (and beautifully illustrated) turn-of-the-century guide to floriography here—maybe you want to take a stab at it?
Currently this ring is a US size 5.75, and we don't recommend sizing in order to preserve the detail on the band.
