Bleeding heart flowers are not the most common floral motif, but they certainly are among the most expressive! Their symbolism is right in their name– hearts so full, they bleed love! These flowers are given to send a very open message of compassion and unconditional love. What a joy to have them never wilt, so beautifully depicted in this 14k gold brooch from the 1940s or 50s! The adorable flowers are given lively color and texture through fine enamel work. Small pearls hang from the hearts, their lustre glistening like dew. Vibrant green enamel defines the leaves and contrasts beautifully with the pink heart flowers. Two gold rings encircle the sprig, further representing a love and union between two spirits. The brooch measures about 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches. A matching pair of earrings completes the sentiment and can be found here.
