FLORAL NECKLACES ARE not new — there have been interpretations of them throughout history culminating in the The Language of Flowers during the Victorian era — basically a dictionary of botanical meanings for every bloom. It was a time when people couldn’t speak directly of their affections and jewelers created pieces to represent the sentiment and symbols.
Since then, flowers have been a motif that the jewelers from renowned houses to independent designers have drawn upon. Such was the case of the necklace that Lady Gaga wore to the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards, which was originally designed by Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. in 1958. But more on that later.
