Don't forget mine

Large filigree pendant with turquoises & pearls in gold, around 1895

In earlier times, jewellery often had a specific meaning and conveyed a message. Gemstones were read as symbols and could convey messages to the recipient. In this pendant, we find such a set, which were selected according to its meaning. The turquoise, lavishly imported from Persia, was a real fashion stone of the 19th century. People of that time loved it because of its color similarity to the forget-me-not. This flower has always been a symbol of tender remembrance as well as a brief parting in sincere love. In addition to the turquoise in the color of flowers so meaningful, the pearl is also a symbol of love and represents the support of the goddess of love, Venus, of which it was the symbol. For Venus herself, like the pearl - we know it from the famous painting Botticelli - was born from a shell. The piece of jewellery we discovered in London shows itself as an airy openwork shape made of filigree gold rods. With a delicate anchor chain, it can be worn around the neck. A perfect gift for a loved one.
