This wonderful mid 19th century pansy ring is fashioned in 18k gold with colorful petals in amethyst and citrine and emeralds at the ovule and shoulders. "Pansy" comes from the French pense meaning "to think." Lovers of a hidden meaning, the five-petaled flower was frequently used in 18th and 19th century love token jewelry to express the sentiment "think of me." French hallmark.
