The Meanings Behind Popular Flower Bracelet Symbols

The Meanings Behind Popular Flower Bracelet Symbols

Some of the most popular symbols seen in jewellery are flowers, as over the past few centuries in particular different plants and flowers have developed a great deal of symbolic importance.

This is why mistletoe and holly are commonly displayed at Christmas and roses are given out on Valentine’s Day.

Certain flowers found on nature charm bracelets are more popular than others, however, so here are the symbolic meaning found on the most popular charms of our collection.

 

Forget-Me-Nots

One of the few truly blue flowers found in nature, forget-me-nots are associated with love, loyalty, resilience and remembrance, which is why they have become a symbol to support people with Dementia.

The name is believed to have come from the Battle of Waterloo, as there is a common legend that forget-me-nots grew after the battle ended, with a French tradition that said that forget-me-nots planted on the graves of loved ones would grow for as long as you live.

 

Golden Rose

The classic red rose is one of the quintessential symbols of love’s intensity, passion and beauty, but the golden rose has two meanings depending on whether the golden rose is natural or was dipped in gold plate.

The former is a symbol of a loving, caring friendship, given to someone as thanks for being a caring friend.

However, a gold plated rose symbolises a romantic love that has been immortalised and will last forever.

 

Four Leaf Clover

A universally-recognised symbol of luck, the four-leaf clover is a rare variation of the much more common three-leaf clover, but where this belief began is far more difficult to find.

According to traditional beliefs, each leaf represents a different special virtue; hope, faith, love and luck.

According to Irish legend, St. Patrick taught pagans about Christianity by using the three-leaf clover to represent the holy trinity, with the fourth leaf representing grace.
