Under a weeping willow tree sits an urn on top of a plinth with the words REMEMBER ME, though these words are very tiny and hard to read.
- symbolism -
In heraldry, an urn is symbolic of the triumph of immortality over death, and is a symbol of the afterlife. It was a motif to represent the self in mourning. The weeping willow tree often represents grief, sorrow and mourning. It conveys a picture of the grief felt for the loss of the departed.

In the last photograph I've gathered some gorgeous sentimental wax seal charms. You can find this forget me not charm here.
and while I have several forget me nots I selected this one because I like to think it's shedding a tear, off to the right, though it may be shedding a petal.
The wax seal charm with the words THO LOST TO SIGHT TO MEMORY DEAR is available here.
The rolo chain, is available separately here.
The ouroborus split ring charm holder signifies infinity and the cycle or birth and death. It is not yet available but it will be soon, in sterling silver!
Pearls are full of symbolism, often varying by period and culture, and in Victorian England they were symbolic of tears. If you'd like to add a pearl to your necklace you can find it here.
