Thimbles were given as love tokens in Victorian times when gifts of any type were discouraged between men and women. Peter Pan and Wendy exchanged thimbles and acorn buttons as kisses. In American Colonial times when items of jewelry were prohibited for moral reasons a thimble was the gift from a fiance to his future bride as a symbol of love and pledge of eternal togetherness. When she married the women removed the bottom of the thimble to form more of a wedding ring. With such a long history thimbles as a tender gesture of affection I have created a series of one of a kind thimble necklaces.

I admit I have a weakness for the little vintage children's thimbles. They are so tiny and sweet. This one is less than 3/4" and has a lovely feather detail around the rim. I have paired it with an acorn charm and both hang from an 18" med. heavy vintage chain. I added a flat heart charm to the back of the chain for a sweet romantic touch. The chain closes with a simple clasp. The pendant is crafted entirely of solid sterling silver.
