|Forget-me-nots are at the center of this pair of delicate earrings. The shape is the form of a flower with petals of cut steel. Flowers replaced words in sentimental jewelry of the 19th century and were a language of their own. Blue forget-me-nots and daisies represented thoughts of love and remembrance. When a gent gifted his love with an image of a forget-me-not, he was telling her that he was thinking of her or that he wished she think of him. The have had their wires replaced from steel to gold. The blue flowers are enamel. Condition is very good. The trace of discoloration visible in the magnified image, has been well cleaned. Approx 1 1/2 in in length 1/2 in in width|
