A beautifully ornate Victorian hand necklace pendant, the figural right hand clasping a charm holder ring so you can easily add charms.  Necklace chain sold separately.

The hand, detailed on both sides, has a lovely cuff, a ring on her index finger, and is holding both the charm holder ring and a small orb between her thumb and index finger.
The chain slips through a large bail opening, under the pear, and measures almost 1/4" (9mm x 5mm) so will accommodate most any chain.

We have borrowed the Victorian hand from history and and altered it before reproducing it in sterling silver to share with you.

- symbolism -
The hand is the tool of tools. It represents strength, power and protection. It's also symbolic of loyalty, strength, romance, generosity, hospitality and stability. Historically, the hand has been and continues to be symbolic of greeting and friendship.
For centuries, the shape of the pear has represented the female form in the art world, and has been symbolic of femininity and fruitfulness.
In many cultures, the pear is a symbol of affection, inner peace, comfort, longevity and the Chinese believe it to be symbolic of immortality.
