Victorian Faith, Hope & Charity Agate Charm Necklace


The three symbols of faith, hope and charity - a cross, anchor and heart - carved from agate and with sweet floral bales . The heart and cross might speak for themselves, but the anchor as a metaphor for hope might need some explaining. During the Napoleonic Wars, it became a relevant popular symbol at a time when seafaring meant that a loved one might never be seen again. Essentially, it meant “come back safely to me,” not necessarily by ship, but in general. On a new 14k gold chain.
