This wonderful Victorian pansy pendant is fashioned in gold with blue guilloché enamel. "Pansy" comes from the French pense meaning "to think" - ostensibly because the flower resembles a face. 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." The blossom is framed in white enamel, each petal is set with a bright rose cut diamond, and a pearl ovule marks the center.
