Story

A seal within a seal - this glorious silver hand motif creation is exquisitely modeled, tactile and replete with fine details.

While it may now be worn as a pendant, its original use was as a seal to impress into wax to close a letter or document. The jewel depicts a finely rendered right hand holding a small seal. It transitions to a fancy, ruffled cuff and sleeve, then to ribbed decorative elements and a flowered base.

At the bottom, initials are present, surrounded by a garter motif. The garter has a long and illustrious lineage in England dating back to the 1300s with the formation of the Order of the Garter.

It also became a popular motif for jewelry and objects in the 19th century. Why human hands are so fascinating to us seems to lie in the fact that it separates us from all other animals on our small blue planet.
