I'll Break Before I Change Wax Seal Charm - Strong and Absolute Conviction -French caption "Plutôt Rompre Que Plier" meaning Break Rather Than Bend.
In Heraldry, the Oak tree is a symbol of virtue, strength and resiliency and denotes steadfastness and endurance. This pendant is symbolic of an individual who is strong and absolute in their beliefs, an individual who will not change or break under pressure, rather, remain steadfast in the storm. They would rather break then change long established beliefs.
"As a man lives so shall he die, As a tree falls so shall it lie" ~ English Proverb
