Rose Hand Engraved Love Token Necklace
My modern take on Victorian love tokens which were often scraped coins (on either side) with a hand engraved forget me not on one side and initials on the other. They were meant to be tangible reminders of a bond between lovers. I combined this idea with floriography, a secret language of flowers which was prevalent in the 16th century.
I have created 3 hand engraved tokens that represent love, luck, and remembrance.
Rose, particularly a thornless rose symbolizes love at first sight.
