Flower power

Real flowers are beautiful to look at, but they are over so quickly... The solution? Imitate them in metal and precious stones and you can enjoy their splendour for ever. Floral motifs have always been popular in art across continents and cultures. Different meanings were ascribed to the individual sorts of flower. But be careful when interpreting these motifs because their meaning often varied according to the region and the period.
