The model for these multi-faceted flower earrings is the pansy (often referred to as viola or violet, too). It is the official flower of February, the sign of Aquarius, the sign of love and adoration. Pansies flush into color at the first sign of spring, signifying winter be gone.
Dear roses, you get much of the glory, but the pansy is a resilient rockstar ready to out-purple you and is an equal stand-in for love. They are like genuine flowers clipped to your ears: a brilliant burst of spring. Classy, springy, a showstopper.
Pansies are edible, with a subtle green minty taste. Jewelry designer Janet Mavec scatters the petals atop a white-frosted cake for a floral surprise.
Pansies symbolize adoration and loyalty to a person. They make an outstanding love gift, especially for those women and men who find roses cliché.
