Lobelia with Mogra Ring (with and without small purple wildflower)


This ring is a fusion of two extremely different flowers.

Lobelias in Italian culture is a sign of anger or to indicate to someone that they have angered you.

“The Malevolence of Lobelia” sounds like an obscure Italian opera, but in Victorian England, that’s the message you would have been sending with a bright blue bouquet of this tiny flowering plant.

Equally dramatic is the jasmine which is the purest Indian flower to express patience, love and growth.

Bringing the two flowers together is my idea of showing how two emotions can coexist in harmony and still be beautiful.
