Victorian Hidden Message Brooch Pin 'Forget Me Not'

Ancient Greek myth tells us that while the Creator was giving all flowers their color, he heard a soft whisper, “Forget me not!”. By the time this tiny voice was heard, nearly all his colors had been used up. He was only able to gift this little flower a small amount of blue. None the less, this flower was very pleased and delighted to don such a lovely blue shade, and so he wore it with pride and happiness. During Medieval times, ladies wore this flower’s symbol as a sign of enduring love and faithfulness.

This antique Victorian 9 karat gold brooch was handcrafted in England in 1896. The front of this oval engraved brooch features a motif of forget-me-not flowers with a garter or buckle frame. The front piece opens to reveal a secret message: Forget Me Not. This brooch pin measures 38.5 x 18.5 mm and it weighs 3.8 grams. This piece has been fully hallmarked as it bears the gold purity mark, “9.CARAT” and the registration number, “RD273697”. There is also a maker’s mark that reads, “W.J.H”.

This perfect brooch pin would tidy up any jacket lapel and would be a lovely golden accent on a winter scarf.
