A single cherry red rose has been carefully pressed and encased alongside a tiny vintage skeleton key on a bed of real dried mosses, lichen and ferns in lovely brass assemblage locket. The chain is adorned with a brass Victorian hand, acorn and oak leaf charms as well as some Czech glass bead accents. The necklace is completed by using a pretty bolt and loop style fastening for an extra decorative touch.
The natural beauty of these flowers whilst still growing in the fields and woodlands has been captured using a multi-stage preservation process, to create a vibrant flower to last a lifetime.
The locket has been hung on a 28 inch long bronze rollo chain.
Roses have had a deeply symbolic meaning since the time of the Greeks and Romans, when they were affiliated with Aphrodite and Venus, the Goddess's of love, beauty and femininity. In Victorian times, pink roses symbolizes happiness, and rosebuds to symbolize new love, making this the perfect thoughtful gift for Valentines day or an anniversary!
Based on the history and folklore of these plants, I have created a truly meaningful gift for your loved one, a bouquet of flowers which will never fade away. Your new pendant will arrive safely packaged in one of my beautiful signature gift boxes, complete with a gift card telling where it was made and it's symbolic significance.
As this piece was made real flowers and plants, take care to keep it dry and to store it safely away from direct sunlight when you're not wearing it.
Ruby Robin specializes in unique, keepsake jewellery for the modern day romantic. All the designs were imagined and made by Irish designer Khrystyna Marriott.
The pieces at Ruby Robin are designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine, to stir the imagination, inspire wonder and encapsulate a microcosm of long forgotten memories. I make my jewellery using a range of strange and beautiful curiosities, found in the woods and on the mountain sides, on the windswept beaches and wild meadows.
