The Blue Rose
There is a story of a poor
maiden and a prince separated by miles and privilege. You see
the two had met one day in the village. He on his mighty steed
and her pushing the flower cart she used to make a few
shillings. He was mesmerized by her beauty. However this kind
of love was forbidden as royalty was expected to see only
those of like privilege. It wasn't long after their first
meeting before he planned visits to the village. He had to
travel under the cover of darkness, but it forged the bonds of
true love between the two. He knew he had to keep their
relationship a secret. So he devised a way to let her know he
was thinking of her by using the Language of Flowers to convey
his feelings. The Language of Flowers was used in Victorian
times to send special messages or feelings without using
words. A red rose signified love, a pink rose… desire, etc. He
began leaving roses of different colors placed in strategic
places for the young maiden to find. As time went on he found
every rose color imaginable. They were left at her door and
secret meeting places. But there was one rose color that
escaped him. The elusive blue rose. The Blue Rose signifies
mystery, intrigue and the obtaining of love that might, at
times, seem to have numerous obstacles to overcome. One such
obstacle soon presented itself. He had to leave for a
period of time. He was not able to explain things fully to her
but he promised her he would return for her.
Many days and nights would pass. One day she found a note
tacked to her door. It simply said..."Come to the garden".
She turned the corner to the garden path and an intoxicating aroma
of roses filled the air. As she approached her garden she saw
him, he had come for her. He stood surrounded by hundreds of red roses and one
blue rose in his hand. He gave up
everything to start his life over again with her. You see for
love, and in matters of the heart, what might seem
unattainable for some is only a matter of knowing where to
look. Chest is engraved with a hearts and flowers motif
Your very own heart.

Story See Left
In the Victorian Era
people who desired to communicate or send a secret message
used the "Language of Flowers" to express their
feelings. There were times, due to various circumstances,
that ones true feelings could not be openly expressed. So
people of this era devised a way to arrange flowers in a
certain way or choose a specific color to reveal these
thoughts and feelings secretly.
Red roses meant love and romance. White meant purity,
innocence, sympathy and spirituality and so on. However the
rarest of the rare is the elusive Blue Rose. The Blue Rose
signifies mystery, intrigue and the obtaining of love that
might, at times, seem to have numerous obstacles to overcome.
