Directors notes
The anchor was a popular motif used in Victorian jewellery to represent hope and steadfastness. The symbol and its meaning can be traced back to the bible, to Hebrews 6:19 “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast”. It was used on brooches, pendants, lockets and charms and was sometimes combined with a heart and cross to represent Faith (cross) Hope (anchor) and Charity (heart).
