Daisy’s Victorian Tale

Symbolism? Yes this trio is chockablock full of signs that have changed with time.  The Victorian/Edwardian gold washed locket with crescent moon and star motif meant “Rebirth” first associated with the ancient Sumerians.  In Victorian times this was the HONEYmoon, given by a groom to his bride indicating a recent marriage.  The Celluloid hand pointing down is indicative of spirit watching over us and in our time indicates direction. And the Daisy engraved upon the Art Deco Heart locket? She can indicate innocence and purity.  In Victorian times, Lady Mary Wortley’s, “History of The Language of Flowers,” noted that a daisy given and accept meant mutual romantic affection–“wink, wink, I like you too!”
