HYDRANGEA COIN CHARM NECKLACE ~ For Gratitude, Apology, Understanding, Unity, Grace & Abundance

The name hydrangea comes from the Greek ‘hydros’ and ‘angos’ meaning water and jar, and their colour depends on the acidity of the soil they grow in. A pink flower can be turned blue by increasing the acidity. Originally from the far East, legend has it that a Japanese Emperor gifted a plant to the family of the woman he loved as a token of his sincere apologies for neglecting her, and they still represent apology and heartfelt emotion to this day. Nowadays, it is common for hydrangea to be given as a 4th wedding anniversary gift to represent gratitude and unity but the Victorians took a different view. The plant was seen to represent arrogance, boastfulness and vanity, due in part because it produced wonderful and abundant flowers but so few seeds. They would also be sent by a spurned suitor to the woman who had refused him, insinuating her cold and frigid. Perhaps this led to the folklore that growing a hydrangea near your front door would leave your daughter unable to find a partner! Hydrangea is a favoured flower of the fae, and burning the bark of a plant will break the curse of a witch.

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

Ludlow, Shropshire

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.
