In the Victorian era a cattail was akin to an olive branch– a symbol of peace and reconciliation. Alongside a lilypad, which in some cultures represents resurrection, this cattail pin is a powerful symbol of harmony after strife, and through its naturalistic beauty, offers the serenity one might find sitting aside a lake where these plants reside. Thoughtfully handmade, detailed, and textured 14k rose and yellow gold come together to create a nice contrast that evokes lakeside hues. A small old European cut diamond sparkles like a drop of dew on the golden lilypad– it weighs approximately .07 carat. The pin measures 2 3/8 inches long and about 5/8 inch at its widest point.
