CINQUEFOIL COIN CHARM NECKLACE ~ For Beloved Daughter, Maternal Affection, Love, Prosperity & Protection
Cinquefoil is a member of the rose family and is widely distributed throughout the northern hemisphere. The flowers are encompassed by 5 leaves said to signify love, money, health, power and wisdom, carrying a cinquefoil will grant you any of these attributes. Medieval knights would often decorate their shields with the 5 leaf symbol, the right to do so only granted by heraldry and permitted to those who had achieved mastery. In the middle ages, cinquefoil was a powerful ingredient used in magic and many potions including, witches flying ointment, love potions and prosperity spells. Fishermen tied cinquefoil to their nets in the hope of a bountiful catch and it could be used to remove a curse or hex. It is said that to protect your home from negative forces, fill an eggshell with cinquefoil and leave it in a safe place.
Our coin sentiment charms are made with real flowers in sterling silver, using the traditional technique of lost wax casting. They are beautifully packaged with our signature box posy which changes with the seasons, a postcard detailing the botanical folklore and floriography of each piece, and a gift card for a personal message.
Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.

Flower & Fable
We are Karen & Ben Lambert, working together from our shop/workshop while living above. We use real flowers to create vintage & floriography inspired jewellery, using a mixture of traditional and specifically developed techniques.
We believe that jewellery should feel like a gift, whether for yourself or for someone else, so it should be beautifully packaged. From eco-packaging and hand dyed bamboo silk ribbons, to our seasonal, scented dried flower posy, we love attention to detail, and for Karen, it's a favourite part of the process.
