Flowers make beautiful traditional gifts for Valentine's day.
During the Victorian era, a whole romantic language developed around the giving and receiving of flowers. Everything from the type and size of the flower to the way it was held or presented conveyed layers of meaning and communicated a gentleman’s feelings and intentions.
Each bouquet or piece of jewellery contained a secret message for a lady to eagerly interpret and endlessly dissect.
Some flowers meanings are obvious, like the forget-me-nots engraved on this beautiful heart shaped pendant, while some are not quite so easy to interpret.
