A striking pair of enameled flowers drop to the jawline in this pair of Arts and Crafts-inspired earrings. The early 20th century movement was a response to the dark and mechanical Industrial Revolution, and jewelry that emerged from it focused on sinuous lines, bright colours (often achieved through enamel), inspiration from nature, and a focus on hand-wrought materials. These beautifully crafted vintage silver earrings take clear aesthetic cues from the movement, and perhaps a light inspiration from the popular late 19th century love of the "secret language of flowers."

Though the concept dates back considerably earlier, the Victorians were particularly enamoured of floriography - the pairing of distinct meanings to each flower (and often varying by colour). The blue violet symbolized love and faithfulness, as well as watchfulness and modesty.
