The Secret Language of Flowers

The Secret Language of Flowers

Flowers have long been revered for their beauty and fragrance, but did you know that they also have their own secret language? Across cultures and throughout history, flowers have been used to convey messages of love, friendship, and emotion, each bloom carrying unique a symbolism and significance.

While bouquets are beautiful, it's always sad to see the leaves wilt and the petals fall. If you want to give the gift of flowers that never fade, you need some of our floral jewelry that will last a lifetime! And so that you send exactly the right message to someone you care about, we’ve put together a little floral dictionary based on our garden-inspired collection.


I Just Want to Say I Love You

Red roses are the universal symbol of love, but did you know that pink roses convey perfect happiness or that you can say “I can’t live without you” with a primrose?

I'm Thinking of You

The word ‘pansy’ comes from the French word for thought: pensee. In Victorian England, lovers sent their thoughts of love through bouquets of herbs with a pansy at the center. If you want to let someone know you’re thinking of them, check out our pansy-inspired jewelry!

Thank You for Understanding

Flowers aren't just for romance. Sometimes they're the perfect way to tell your friends how much you appreciate them. If you want to thank someone for being there for you in a tough spot, hydrangeas - either the flower or some floral jewelry ;) - can show your gratitude for their compassion.

You’re Beautiful to Me

Yellow tulips mean there’s sunshine in your smile and a mix of colored tulips tells the recipient that they have beautiful eyes. If you want to tell someone they're a stunner with a tropical flare, plumerias also symbolize beauty and grace. They represent spring, new life, and new beginnings as well, making them a beautifully versatile statement piece.

More Than Just a Flower

In addition to their individual meanings, flowers can also be combined to create elaborate messages and convey complex emotions. A bouquet of mixed blooms, carefully arranged and selected, can tell a story of love, devotion, or friendship, with each flower adding its own voice to the conversation.

So the next time you find yourself admiring a beautiful bouquet or receiving a thoughtful gift of flowers or floral jewelry, take a moment to consider the hidden messages they may contain. From declarations of love to expressions of gratitude, the language of flowers offers a timeless and enchanting way to communicate the deepest sentiments of the heart. And with Foterra's garden-inspired jewelry, you can show your feelings with a gift that lasts as long as your love.
