A vibrant Georgian pendant fashioned in a cruciform shape with a cannetille halo around the center stone and granti along its outer edges. Each arm is a pansy with garnet petals and a pearl ovule. "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."
