Rosemary has long been associated with improving memory & sprigs were worn by students taking exams in ancient Greece. Nowadays, it is rosemary oil that is popular. In Britain the plant has traditionally been used for remembrance, it was thrown by mourners as the coffin was lowered at a funeral. Shakespeare’s interest in floriography is shown in Hamlet, when Ophelia says, “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance; pray, love, remember.” It is believed that where rosemary flourishes, the woman rules & that a man who is indifferent to the fragrance of rosemary, is unable to truly love a woman. In the middle ages it was commonly used in wedding ceremonies as a love charm.
Our petite sentiment charms are made with real flowers in sterling silver, using the traditional technique of lost wax casting. They are beautifully packaged with our signature box posy which changes with the seasons, a postcard detailing the botanical folklore and floriography of each piece, and a gift card for a personal message.
