Golden yellow gold color showcases mistletoe design that drops into locket's face from the top. Mistletoe design was etched by hand and inset with pearls to simulate berries. Ridged border catches and casts light dynamically. Classic silhouette is solidly made with featherlight weight and feel in your hand. Locket has slim cache laying flush when worn.

Symbolism in antique and vintage jewelry is common, yet it can be hard to spot if you don't know what you're looking for. Often, specific natural gemstones, flowers, birds, and motifs like stars and anchors were imbued with meanings that have fallen out of present-day society's collective memory. To appreciate the power of symbols in antique jewelry is to imagine what it would have been like to wear the piece and step back into history. Floriography, or the language of flowers, is rooted in the Victorian era. It refers to the assignment of special emotional meanings to certain flowers. Including those flowers in jewelry was a way to slyly convey one's feelings in a society that discouraged showing your emotions. For example, red roses were (and still are today) associated with romantic love and passion, while forget-me-knots were associated with remembrance.
