A beautiful two colour red and yellow gold brooch that was made circa 1820-1830 and is full of romantic meaning! In the centre is a pansy that sends the message “Pense a Moi” which is a pun on the French word and means “Think of me” The first letter of each gem in the pansy represents a letter that spells the word ‘REGARD’. Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, Ruby and Diamond. Wrapped around the flower are yellow gold tendrils with leaves above a reddish gold background formed of an intertwined knot design to signify a bond of loyalty . Sentimental, romantic jewellery such as this was very popular in Georgian and Victorian times. It has a glazed locket on the reverse.
