This marvellous antique Victorian pendant depicts a high relief forget me not topped with a faux turquoise in the centre. It’s modelled in silver and gilded in 18ct yellow gold, which has been textured across the flower’s leaves and petals, and smoothed in the pendant’s scalloped setting, giving a beautiful two level effect that sets the flower apart.

An old German tale tells of two lovers walking by a river. After picking a bouquet of blue flowers for his love the man fell into the river and was swept away – crying out ‘Forget me not’. These beautiful flowers have been known by this name ever since, and are a powerful symbol of enduring love and remembrance.

It’s very pretty and would look wonderful suspended from a gold chain.
