FUN FACT: According to folklore many brave men have mountaineered to dangerous and fatal locations in the European Alps to harvest the rare Edelweiss flower to give to their loved one as a sign of their love and devotion. Unfortunately some would fall to their death and each Edelweiss botanical represents a tear shed in their memory. Talk about devotion! Edelweiss is also the National flower of Switzerland. ** Disclaimer - no one was hurt trying to harvest the Edelweiss for this pendant.
** Each pendant is one-of-a-kind and no two pieces will ever be the exact same. This is due to nature's individuality. Please note that the item you receive will look slightly different than the ones showcased here.
