This necklace features a brass plated casting of a Victorian woman's hand. We named it Auxilium, which means lend a helping hand in Latin, making it a lovely gift for someone whose support you dearly appreciate.

Hands commonly symbolize emotion in art and design, whether shaking hands in friendship, holding hands in affection, or asking for a hand in marriage. Victoria-era buttons often portray disembodied hands as symbols of loyalty, strength, romance, and fidelity.

This hand clutches a ring holding a trio of charms, including a one-of-a-kind, Victorian-era antique button, a tiny locket, and a hand-wrapped freshwater pearl. 

Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image.

This necklace also features a sliding clasp that enables you to adjust its length to suit any neckline. You can wear it as a choker, as a long pendant, or anywhere in between.
