Rhiannon 9ct Welsh Gold Miniature Lovespoon Pendant



A beautiful tiny lovespoon pendant of a simple heart design in Rhiannon Welsh Gold, a twist on the old Welsh tradition of giving lovespoons to your beloved.

The tradition of giving lovespoons goes back at least 400 years and involved a suitor carving a spoon for the object of his affections. Over the years they became more elaborate and many symbols were incorporated, each with a special meaning.

In some parts of Wales the term Sponer (probably a Welsh influenced form of Spooner) is still used as a synonym for one’s boyfriend or girlfriend.
