A single blood red rose bud has been carefully pressed and encased in an antique style glass pane locket, to create this incredibly pretty, romantic keepsake necklace.
The natural beauty of these flowers whilst still growing in the fields and woodlands has been captured using a multi-stage preservation process, to create a vibrant flower to last a lifetime.
The locket has been hung on a long bronze rolo chain, which is both elegant and very strong.
Roses have had a deeply symbolic meaning since the time of the Greeks and Romans, when they were affiliated with Aphrodite and Venus, the Goddess's of love, beauty and femininity. In Victorian times, pink roses symbolizes happiness, and rosebuds to symbolize new love, making this the perfect thoughtful gift for Valentines day or an anniversary!
While every care has been taken to ensure the longevity of this piece, do try to keep it away from water.
The pieces at Ruby Robin are designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine, to stir the imagination, inspire wonder and encapsulate a microcosm of long forgotten memories. I make my jewellery using a range of strange and beautiful curiosities, found in the woods and on the mountain sides, on the windswept beaches and wild meadows.
