Symbol of hope

Vintage gold brooch in the shape of an anchor, England dated 1967

The dream of the sea has always inspired people. The freedom to sail to the horizon and beyond, the mysterious depth of the waves and the beauty of exotic beaches: danger and seduction are inextricably linked with the idea of sailing the vastness of the water. Many elements of seafaring have also found their place in the symbolic treasure trove of our Western civilization. The anchor is a particularly prominent example of a symbol that has also found a place in the Christian religion. In Mark 15:38 it is considered a symbol of hope, for just as the anchor holds the ship securely in place, so the hope and promise of the resurrection binds man to God. Here now is a particularly pretty piece of jewellery, which is certainly able to give support in some situations of life, at least in matters of style! According to the stamping, the brooch was created in 1967 and brings 9-karat gold into a small, pretty design. A rope of gold is looped around the anchor and a pin attached to the back makes the small symbol wearable. The gold anchor came to us from London and can be worn by both men and women.
