 This striking necklace is centered by a rare and collectible antique porcelain button depicting delicate light and dark pink roses. 

The button sits in an antique brass filigree belt buckle that is set with cut steel. During our spring button hunting trip, we were amazed to discover ten of these exceedingly rare buckles. 

In Floriography or the Victorian language of flowers, dark pink roses symbolize gratitude while light pink ones signify happiness and grace.

Boldly expressing your feelings wasn't socially acceptable in Victorian-era England. Much like modern teenagers with emojis, Victorians expressed their feelings with flowers.

Most Victorian-era porcelain buttons were hand-painted by well-bred women in their parlors. Painting porcelain was a popular domestic art in the late 19th century, similar to needlework or knitting in the 20th century.

We named this piece Floryn, a girl's name that means flourishing or blooming.

In this piece:

  • Hand-painted antique porcelain button in an unusual oval shape, circa 1890-1920
  • Rare brass filigree belt buckle set with cut steel, circa 1890
  • Vintage white pearl button, circa 1950
  • Brass ornamental links stamped today in the USA in vintage dies
  • Antiqued brass and silver-plated chains
  • Length is 32”
