Forget me not meaning
The forget-me-not is associated with romance, but it also has a tragic fate and was often worn by ladies as a sign of faithfulness and enduring love.
Legend tells of a knight and his lady who were walking along a riverbank. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted "forget me not".
Garnet is the birthstone for January and also celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage. The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike,” in reference to a pomegranate's seeds.
Each forget me not box is 5 cm (1.9”) wide and is presented in an organza gift bag.
Our small boxes are handmade with polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead). By using solid metal, it means the surface of the box will never rust or flake. Simply wash with warm soapy water to clean and dry with soft cloth.
