Romantic Rose & Saga Seed Jewellery to Gift this Valentine’s Day
Across countries, tribes, and cultures, love is expressed in unique and different ways. In South Africa, women pin the names of their crushes on their sleeves. In Italy, lovers exchange Baci Perugina - small, chocolate-covered hazelnuts with romantic quotes printed on the wrapper. In Japan, women present men with chocolates and flowers.
Yet for all these differences, one thing remains the same: the gift of giving - with saga seeds (in some Asian cultures) and roses being one of the most common symbols of love. In this article, we’ll share some truly unique rose and saga seed jewellery to gift this Valentine's Day.
Saga Seed - A Love for the Ages
The red seeds of the Saga (Adenanthera pavonina) tree have become a global symbol of love, nostalgia, and longing. Their blood-red colour, as time goes by, continues to deepen, inspiring a tradition of romantic gestures. In mandarin, saga seeds are called 相思豆 (xiang si dou) which in literal terms means "mutual love beans”. In many Asian cultures, lovers present saga seeds to their partners to express love and affection. This, together with their blood-red hue, a common allegory for deep emotions, makes them the perfect centrepiece for a romantic gesture.

Roses - The Flower of Love
In the long history of the human race, we’ve taken on symbols to represent strong beliefs or concepts. Doves for peace and tranquillity; skulls for dread and dismay; phoenixes for rebirth and renewal; and (crucially for this romantic season) roses for love and romance.
For centuries, roses have been associated with passion and deep intimacy. According to the Greek poet Anacreon, red roses were created from the blood of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. In Chinese folklore, The Legend of the Blue Rose, associates blue roses with a love that conquers all. Many other traditions across the globe embrace roses as a symbol of adoration. So this Valentine’s Day, showcase affection with rose jewellery as an immortal expression of your love.
