The Forget-Me-Not flower is a romantic symbol with a long history of remembrance. Its name comes from a German legend that tells the story of a knight and his lover who were picking flowers by the Danube River, when he fell in. He cried, “Forget-me-not, O Lord!” as he was swept away, and the man threw his beloved a blue posy of flowers to remind her not to forget him.
During the Romantic era, botanicals became popular as a symbol of love and devotion.

Flora was often used in jewellery to express sentiments and feelings that were not allowed to be expressed verbally at that time.
