This wonderful Antique Victorian lavaliere necklace has been commissioned in Silver. It features nine droppers which depict forget me not flowers and are set with glistening blue and white Paste stones. Above the flowers the necklace boasts an array of more sparkling white Paste stones.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
A stunning necklace which is sure to catch the eye and look fabulous when worn.
