These aren’t just pretty embellishments; they have a real meaning. For example, a Victorian brooch that is decorated with ivy represents everlasting love, deep friendship or marriage, though if this brooch is also dotted with pearls it means it’s a mourning piece (pearls represent tears), so it would have been worn by someone who wanted to remember a departed loved one. It’s well worth the effort discovering this hidden symbolism behind jewellery – it can take our love of it to a whole new and deeper level. Here is an at-a-glance list of jewellery symbols to quickly help you identify hidden codes used in your vintage jewellery. A full list of flower meanings is at the bottom of the page.
