The Peony is mainly known for representing ideas and values including romance, prosperity, good fortune, beauty in all forms, riches, honor, and compassion. Beyond symbolism peonies were also valued for their medicinal uses. In ancient and medieval times their roots and seeds were believed to cure over twenty diseases including epilepsy and snake bites. In England, children wore peony root necklaces to prevent seizures and help teething pain.
Such a striking flower with such a beautiful message.
I will reach out after purchase to finalize length of necklace.
