Hand carved and painted tiny red rose necklace, Rosa Gallica.
The Victorians began the tradition of using flowers as a means to communicate unspoken feelings. Red roses have been synonymous with passion and romantic love.
In ancient Greece, the rose was closely associated with the goddess Aphrodite.
Following the Christianization of the Roman Empire, the rose became identified with the Virgin Mary. The colour of the rose and the number of roses received has symbolic representation. The rose symbol eventually led to the creation of the rosary and other devotional prayers in Christianity.
