  • Regular price $1,550.00

  During the straight-laced Victorian Era, it was not deemed proper to vocalize your affections for a love interest. Because of societal restrictions, the language of flowers became popular. Different blossoms were associated with emotional sentiments, and lovers and friends expressed their feelings for each other by sending and wearing flowers, thus communicating in code. The narcissus flower meant "Unrequited love"- How tragically romantic!

This ring, made of 14 karat yellow gold is fashioned into a heart shape with a tiny narcissus embellished with Persian turquoise and seed pearls. Using an antique replica shank, the original brooch has been transformed into a sweet ring sure to elicit comments of adoration from afar every time you wear your heart on your hand!
