Vintage Pansies Floral Oval Earrings, Gold, Red and Blue
Lovely pansies bloom in pretty, old fashioned tones of golden yellow with a splash of red. The plastic stones are circa 1970's and are hand set into new, antique brass finish settings.
Due to its resemblance to a human face, the name pansy is derived from the French word pensée, meaning "thought." The flower's meaning tends to be "you are in my thoughts". Pansies are also flowers of remembrance. In folklore, it was thought that placing pansies over a sleeping person's eyes would compel the person upon waking to fall in love with the first person on which they set eyes
Actual stones are 18mm x 13mm, quite dainty. I've hung them on long brass tone ear wires that are about 42mm long. Or, if you prefer, I can switch out the ear wires for shorter, rounded ones shown in the last photo. Just let me know in the "notes to seller" section upon purchase.
Ear wires are lead free, nickel free and made in the USA.
