CHRISTIAN TRILOGY ( Victorian Jewelry Faith, Hope & Charity Pin / Brooch ): I am pleased to offer this truly divine 14KT brooch of the three great virtues - faith, hope and charity. (c. 1870) These three virtues allow man to share in God’s nature. Long used by many cultures, the Victorians often referred to the trilogy of symbols as faith, hope and love. (Victorians frequently changed things.) By substituting love for charity it fits better into the great romantic age. In this pristine brooch the symbols are made of Chalcedony, a family of minerals that are milky white to bluish in color. The soft radiance and glow of this stone makes an ethereal background for the beautifully engraved 14KT accents to each symbol. The subtle shades of white, blue and hints of red add a depth and mystery that seems so appropriate for this elegant piece of history. There is an extended pin stem and C clasp closure on the back. A superb Antique Faith, Hope and Charity Brooch to treasure for a lifetime and then pass onto another generation to appreciate. LAYAWAY AVAILABLE for any purchase over $200.


Condition: Excellent. Appears to never have been worn.
Size: 1 5/8” high, 1 3/4" wide, 1/4" deep.
