Hand pendants became popular in the mid-1800s, and were often depicted in an elegant position, sometimes clutching a small gemstone. Being an expressive aspect of body language, several jewelry designers characterized their style with the hand motif. This solid 14k piece embodies the elegance of a moment's gesture, cast in gold and left for interpretation.
This vintage pendant was originally a stick pin. We replaced its original stone with a small natural pearl, and added a decorative twisted bail to transform it into a wearable pendant.
