Georgian Garnet & Citrine Pansy Pendant

$1,400

A vibrant Georgian pansy pendant fashioned in silver with a gold washed back, garnet and citrine 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."
