Pressing flowers is an ancient art and a science. During the age of classical Greece and Rome, pressed flower specimens were gathered in the wild and brought back to be studied and analyzed. The tradition of pressing flowers remained in use for centuries in this form. During the nineteenth century, flower pressing became a hobby amongst men and women, as a means to capture and contain the wiles of nature or to preserve memories; flowers from a wedding or given by a loved one.
While pressing flowers is an enjoyable pastime, these pressed flower necklaces capture the beauty and simplicity of the art. Real flowers are captured between glass and encased by a delicate branch motif, in gold vermeil, allowing the wearer to feel refreshed and refined.
