A beautiful and simple classic necklace. "Fleur de Lis" translates to "flower of the lilly" and has long been used to represent French royalty, and is said to signify perfection, light, and life. Legend has it that an angel presented Clovis, the Merovingian king of the Franks, with a golden lily as a symbol of his purification upon his conversion to Christianity. Others claim that Clovis adopted the symbol when waterlilies showed him how to safely cross a river and thus succeed in battle.
