  • Details
    This brooch is an inspired reproduction of a Victorian era.

    The base of this brooch is a delicate hand in black color with red locket heart pendant.

    These sentimental jewels were very popular in Later Victorian Era and used the symbol of the female hand quite prevalently.
    Hands depicted as holding flowers signify friendship and affection. If the flower is a forget-me-not, it is also associated with mourning and remembrance.
    One of the more unique features of the hand is the cuff and the style that it is presented.
    Many of the designs were standardised and set from a common mould, but the little embellishments to the cuff and any jewellery that may be on the fingers tells a tale of individuality and quality.

    The romantic symbolism of the locket really materialized in the Victorian era but you will be surprised to know that they could also contain perfume, strands of hair or even ... poison :)

    So this is my personal interpretation of these fantastic jewelry.
