In the Victorian language of flowers, the  name Pansy derived from the French word "penser" for " to think."   It represented the idea that one would think of and consider the memory of a loved one who departed.  But sometimes it was an indication of love interest between a couple.  As courting was very formal in Victorian society, one could offer a potential love interest a pansy to indicate that they were being admired and thought of. The motif was often incorporated into mourning jewelry, which was a popular trend of the era. 

This realistically executed Forget Me Not brooch is made of 14 karat gold, and has a shining diamond winking from the center. Perfect on a collar, or worn as a boutonniere at the breast of a jacket, it can also be worn as a pendant, making it a wonderfully versatile piece that looks great with any style!
