Here's where to find a collection of hand charms and stampings made of brass, pewter and zinc alloy. The brass and pewter are made in the USA; zinc alloy is almost always quality import. We offer raw brass, antique pewter, and antique silver, and sometimes, gold or gold with antique. Most of them are made in the Victorian style. Queen Victoria loved hand jewelry!
From ancient Roman times all the way up through the ages, clear up to the Georgian and Victorian eras, the hand motif sent a message: Loyalty in friendship and love, strength, and romance. Sometimes hands are seen holding a flower or bouquet given as a token of affection. When you see them clasped together, they signify friendship or solidarity regarding a cause.
