Comment(s).

¹. Several symbols were used on these brooches: love birds often perched on a crescent with an obvious meaning; the anchor of hope; the heart alone or with a cross and anchor for faith, hope and charity; a lover’s knot or buckle; and a horseshoe for good luck. Of course, the heart was particularly significant. You can often find it pierced with an arrow, as two hearts united by Cupid’s arrow, or in the form of a heart padlock, tied with a pink gilt bow and resting on a key. The various species of plant could be barely recognised, and the flowers and leaves became very stylised, and usually overlaid with pink gold alloys and their leaves with yellow (Vivian Becker, ‘Antique and Twentieth Century Jewellery: A Guide for Collectors’, 1980).
