We believe that jewellery should be a gift, whether for yourself or for someone else, so it should be beautifully packaged. Every order comes gift wrapped with our signature posy, which changes with the seasons (UK only). We use recycled silk ribbon and include a gift card for your message, which we can print for you or leave blank for you to hand write.
Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.
From mummification to perfume, for washing and scenting clothes, a cure for migraine and a defence against the plague, Lavender’s history and importance to people is as old as time. In folklore, Cleopatra was said to wear it as her secret weapon in seducing Mark Anthony and Julius Caesar. It is often used as an incense to ward off evil, and is placed in the marital bed to prevent quarrelling. Witches are said to prize the herb for its ability to increase clairvoyance, and a mixture of chamomile, lavender, mugwort and rose petals will attract sprites, fairies, brownies and elves.
