Speedwell, perhaps due to its name, has historically been considered a good luck charm for travellers, in Ireland it was sewn into clothes before a journey to protect against accidents. It was also known as Bird’s Eye, giving rise to the common British folklore that warned if you pick the flower, birds will peck out your eyes. Speedwell was highly prized in folk medicine, particularly in the West of England and Wales, as a remedy for many ailments but especially for coughs and asthma. Its scientific name Veronica chamaedrys alludes to the legendary Saint Veronica, who is said to have wiped the face of Jesus as he went to Calvary. The flowers supposedly resemble the markings left on the cloth with which she wiped his face. In Germany, speedwell is also known by the comical name 'Männertreu', or 'men's faithfulness' because it wilts so quickly after picking.

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.

If you find that not all the sentiments are appropriate, you can personalise your presentation by choosing from the drop down menu. If you select 'other combination' please add a note in 'Special Instructions' in the cart.
