Domed Rose Brooch
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
- William Shakespeare
The Rose Brooch is available in bronze or sterling silver and is 1.75” (45 mm) in diameter. It is domed out like many historical Celtic and Norse brooches, and features a heavier pin back, suitable for clasping heavier garments such as a cloak or kilt.
We offer a matching Rose Pendant, and a lighter weight Rose Pin.
We also offer a Rose Charm and Rose Earrings.
The rose has long symbolized love and beauty. In pre-Christian Rome the rose symbolized devotion the goddess Venus. Later, with the coming of Christianity, the rose came to represent the Virgin Mary. One of the most iconic of historical roses was the Tudor Rose, the badge Henry VII adopted after the end of the War of the Roses, combining the red rose of the House of Lancaster with the white rose of the House of York. The Rose Pin was inspired by the Turod Rose.
