Throughout history, Orange Blossom flowers have symbolized purity, innocence, chastity and fertility. In 1684, Louis XIV transferred from Fontainebleau to Versailles and, fond of their sweet scent and gorgeous white flowers, installed his Orangerie. He insisted that even in the middle of January baskets of orange blossoms perfume the rooms. Because they partly symbolize fertility, the flowers have been considered ideal adornments for brides.
The Orange Blossom Flower Drop Post Earrings are inspired by the famous botanical and fruit panels in the William Morris tea room at the V&A Museum, the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance. The jewelry art in Michaud's Orange Blossom collection brings the harvest season and Edward Burne-Jones’ citrus fruit and blossom art panels to your jewelry collection.
