A PROMISE OF HOPE ( Victorian Jewelry Jet Brooch / Pin ): Anchors were popular as a mourning motif, sometimes representing a loved one lost at sea or referring to the three symbols of Christianity: Faith, Hope & Love, with the anchor representative of Hope. In this gleaming large scale carved Victorian Whitby Jet Brooch the anchor becomes an unforgettable example of Victorian Jewelry at its best. (c. 1850-1860) The shiny jet is jointed to form this design. The stem of the anchor fits into the top and bottom pieces. The twisted "rope" surrounding the Anchor is jeweler tested Sterling Silver. The original C clasp and extended pin stem are still in place. This Antique Brooch is as wearable today as it was over a century and a half ago. Jet is always elegant and sophisticated fit for a Queen! Condition: Excellent. Some old adhesive at the joints on the back. Size: 3 5/8 high, 2 1/4 wide, 1/4 deep.
