In Victorian England plants and flowers were used to communicate messages and sentiments between people to such a degree that a whole vocabulary of meanings were developed and used regularly.
The Ivy plant, with its intertwining stems and closely spaced leaves came to symbolize the idea of Friendship. For many years, it was used in bouquets and in floral arrangements to convey the idea of close personal ties between friends.
Ivy is also a good symbol for Friendship because its growth pattern provides stability and support a for new shoots as they reach ever upward.
In this charm, Ivy woven into a heart shape to express the love and support created between good companions.
