This earrings are inspired reproduction of a Victorian era.

The base of this brooch is a delicate hand in black color pendant from a dome cabochon base.
The dome is 11mm and the total earrings are long 7cm.
All is made in Fakelite, resin as a reproduction inspired of the Whitby Jet or bakelite style.

These sentimental jewels were very popular in Later Victorian Era and used the symbol of the female hand quite prevalently.
Hands depicted as holding flowers signify friendship and affection. If the flower is a forget-me-not, it is also associated with mourning and remembrance.
One of the more unique features of the hand is the cuff and the style that it is presented.
Many of the designs were standardised and set from a common mould, but the little embellishments to the cuff and any jewellery that may be on the fingers tells a tale of individuality and quality.
