Floral Cameos
 


In Victorian times, great meaning was given to flowers. They were almost like a secret language, and there was much custom and etiquette involved in choosing the right flower for a special occasion.

Flowers were used on everything - jewelry, clothing, china, calling cards - and the type of flower used sent a significant message. Red roses meant love, respect, and beauty, and that meaning still lingers in the blooms today. This design features a rose in an elegant, ornate frame.
 
Available in three sizes:
6.88" x 8.78" and 5.85" x 7.46" and 4.85" x 6.20"


Floriography, or "flower language," was a way to express thoughts and feelings that couldn't be spoken aloud. Forget-me-nots given to a lady were a promise from a suitor. They symbolized true love, as well as memories.
 
Available in three sizes:
6.89" x 8.79" and 5.84" x 7.45" and 4.86" x 6.19"
