Further details:

As a stylised depiction of a rose this badge is capable of many interpretations. The rose, as a symbol of purity and virginity was a primary symbol of the Virgin Mary. However, this badge is most likely to have found use as a lover's token; the rose through its association with earthly passion, beauty and happiness being a common amatory motif. The original from which this badge is copied still retained its decorative glass stone.

Please note: Available in a variety of stones. If you require a different stone please enquire separately.

Period: 1300 - 1400 AD, 1400 - 1500 AD
