The symbol of hope... an anchor and ship wax seal necklace pendant.

"A ship should not ride on a single anchor, nor life on a single hope" ~ Greek philosopher Epictetus

- description -
Under the word HOPE is the sun shining upon a bird perched on a cabled anchor that leans against a rock and in the background is a ship on the water.

- symbolism -
In heraldry, the anchor is a symbol of well grounded hope. In stormy weather, the anchor was often the seaman’s last resort. It remains firm and steady amidst stormy waters so symbolizes a stability in us in the storms of life!

Hand cast from an antique Victorian fob wax seal that dates back to 1875.

- approximate measurement - 1” in width by 7/8" height (27mm x 22mm)
- wax seal charm metal - fine silver (.999 pure and recycled silver)
- photographed with an old US dime
- chain - a sterling silver cable chain with a spring ring clasp.
- select the necklace chain length or just the charm at checkout.

Frequently asked questions about suegrayjewelry

Unsure of the size of a wax seal charm? I've included measurements in both inches and millimeters for every charm, as well as included a photo with the charm next to an old US dime, which is the same size as todays dimes.
Many of these wonderful wax seal charms are very small and I'm often asked if I can make them bigger.
I cannot make the wax seal charms larger - the charms can only be the size of the wax seal from which they are stamped in the silver.
Sorry, but I don't engrave my wax seal charms - I don't have the equipment or the experience to do so.
It's a lovely idea so perhaps your local jeweler can do the engraving for you.

The wax seal charms have been oxidized, a process which antiques/ blackens the low areas on the charm, giving it contrast instead of being completely shiny.

If the high areas begin to tarnish and you’d like them shiny again, gently rub a silver polishing cloth over the area to be shined.



This polishing pad works great: ps://www.etsy.com/listing/82422231/silver-polishing-pad-for-wax-seal?
