GeorgianRock CrystalPansy Pendant

This wonderful Georgian pansy pendant is fashioned in silver with a gold wash back and rock crystal petals. "Pansy" comes from the French pense meaning "to think." 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."
