VictorianGold FillCattail Hinged Bangle


According to Floriography, or "the secret language of flowers", cat-tails communicated peace during the 19th century. If you were in an argument with someone and wanted to apologize, this plant (also known as a bulrush) was the one to give as a gift. A jeweled gift: even better. It symbolized a truce, or the desire to mend a relationship. This bracelet, with a nice safety chain, seems to have never been worn.
