Anchor Necklace is our nautical favourite, carrying super high values as the symbol of luck, hope, and steadfastness. The ideal gift for that special someone needing that little bit of stability or success in their adventures.
Let’s go right back to the origin of the Anchor and just how it became such an important shape…
The sleek and smooth Anchor we are so familiar with today was not quite so sophisticated back in the day. Way back in the Bronze Age, the most ancient anchors were merely rocks and boulders. Ancient Greeks were also pretty crafty and used baskets of stones or large sacks filled with sand. All these anchors had shifted aside when the King of Phrygia first designed the Anchor that slightly resembles those of today, with ‘two teeth’. As the timeline of anchor design continually evolved throughout the years, it is fair to say that our Anchor resembles ‘Rodger’s Anchor’. Named after British Admiral Captain Roger, Rodger’s Anchor had an excellent reputation among nautical men of the period used by the British Admiralty in the 19th Century.
So now we know a little more about the origin of the practicality of the Anchor, what about the all-important symbolism?
The symbolism of the Anchor Necklace dates back thousands of years. When a ship raises its Anchor, it represents a safe end of a long journey and marks the beginning of new voyages and adventure. The anchor is the lifeline of the ship keeping all safe from the unpredictable elements of the sea waves, tides and currents. The Anchor Necklace can be said to bring stabilisation to the wearer and grounds those individuals who may be surrounded by uncertainty. So why not give a friend, sister, daughter or mother the Anchor Necklace to remind them that you are there to help support them and guide them with whatever decisions they choose to make.
Adventure and change springs to my mind when I think of an Anchor. We raise the Anchor, be bold, strong and venture into a new stage in our life. A time full of hope, excitement, dreams, expectation, imaginings, and aspirations. The value of faith that is carried by the Anchor encourages and inspires one to follow the course and plans we have made. Be steadfast in your vision of pursuing your new dream and hopes of your future.
