If you are a fan of Beauty & the Beast you will remember this story…
When the Beast was a human prince, an old beggar woman came to his castle requesting shelter from the bitter cold and offered to him this very rose. The prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away because of her haggard appearance. She warned him not to judge her based on appearance for true beauty was found within. When he did not heed her warning, she shed her false form, revealing herself to be an astonishingly beautiful enchantress.
She saw there was no love in the prince’s heart, and thus punished him by turning him into a Beast, and all who dwelt within the castle into living objects. She left him the rose, promising him that it would bloom until his 21st year: If he could learn to love and earn in love in return before the last petal fell, the spell would be broken. If he failed, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time.
Ever since, the Beast kept the rose safe in his chambers, the rose serving as his cou. ntdown and a reminder of his selfishness and cruelty.
When the Beast finally turned 20, his countdown truly began as the rose slowly but surely began to wilt. At the end of the film, the Beast appears to reach the deadline of his 21st birthday because the rose completely finishes wilting.
The Rose is symbol of Beauty and the Beast and is one of the most recognizable items from the movie. Now you can own the Disney Beauty And The Beast Rose Glass Pendant from the movie. I was surprised the cost is only $18.
