Like a sweet and gentle flower, a lovely rose wax seal necklace surrounded by the sentiment THOU TOO WILT FADE ... we all do fade as flowers do, a reminder to live life to its fullest at whatever your age.
This fabulous seal feels a little prickly to me, and yet it is one of my favorites!

Then go, be all thy tints display'd;
Yet stay while I the truth impart:
Thou too wilt droop, thou too wilt fade,
Sweet gentle flower if near her heart.
