Antique Victorian 12-14k Engraved Pendant with Blue Enamel Anchor Locket
Details: This beautiful, endearing 12-14k gold pendant features a light blue enamel anchor and original glass back with enclosed hair woven in a delicate braid. Hair cannot be removed as it would ruin the bezel.
The anchor is a common Victorian motif symbolizing hope. A loved one would be sent off on a voyage with a pendant such as this pinned inside their clothing close to the heart. The hope was always for a safe return.
