Beautiful pendant and storyTo me an anchor signifies someone or something that holds fast to me or that I can depend on through any of life’s storms.
My anchors would be my grandma, husband, and children. The people that anchor me to safety, reality, and love.
I have a rose gold lotus pendant I wear layered with a little diamond.
I gave my mom a lotus card and necklace for her birthday this year. She’s going through a few really hard transitions concurrently and the lotus represents (simplified) beauty growing from mud. She loved it so much she sent the same card back to me for my birthday a week later. Then I bought the same necklace in rose. Wearing it always puts me in a better frame of mind and feelings of connection with my mom.
(This may have been way more than what you were originally asking, sorry!)
I love everything nautical tooI love jewelry with anchors. I see anchors as nautical emblems. I grew up near the sea, and we spent a lot of time on the water. Now, my husband and I own a trimaran sailboat, and he's teaching me how to sail. We plan to sail up and down the east coast when we retire. To me, the ocean is the last frontier, almost like heading out into space with only your wits to guide you. For me, anchors represent freedom and adventure.
