VictorianTurquoiseBluebell Earrings


These Victorian gold and turquoise earrings are rendered in the shape of stylized bluebells, the classically English harbinger of springtime. In the Victorian language of floriography -- in which a vast catalog of flowers corresponded with highly specific sentiments -- the bluebell represented humility and devotion. Each petal hangs independent from the others giving these earrings a lovely sense of movement.
