This necklace features a silver plated casting of a Victorian woman's hand. We named it Auxilium, which means to 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 vintage mother-of-pearl button, a silver-plated brass locket with glass pearl, and a hand-wrapped freshwater pearl.
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.
