Valentine's and Victorians

In honor of Valentine's Day we wanted to make our monthly promotion all about love.

Floriography exploded in the Victorian era, making a gift of Valentine’s Day roses a form of communication. In floriography, each rose color represents the giver’s feelings toward the recipient.

Victorian Society was very conservative, and emotionally-reserved so the “talking bouquets” of floriography grew tremendously popular. Below are some meanings of common rose colors:

  • Red rose: Romantic love, desire (can be expressed with a single red rose)

  • White rose: Innocence and charm

  • Mixed red and white roses: Unity

  • Light pink rose: Grace

  • Dark pink rose: Thankfulness

  • Medium pink rose: Happiness

  • Lavender rose: Enchantment, love at first sight

  • Burgundy rose: Beauty

  • Coral rose: Desire

  • Orange rose: Fascination

  • Peach rose: Modesty, immortality

  • Yellow rose: Friendship, joy, gladness

  • Mixed colored roses: You’re everything to me

Here are some of our favorite open source photos from this special day and some of our pieces on sale for Valentine's Day

 Each piece is soldered and burnished, then hand painted. The result is a bunch of flowers that deliver a message, just as in Victorian times.
