Vintage Victorian Bible verse rhodium plated mustard seed pendant for faith and hope
Small bright rhodium plated silver toned mustard seed pendant. This style comes from the Victorian fashion during the turn of the century though this particular brooch appears to be from the mid century. The mustard seed is encased in a lucite ball that slightly magnifies the piece. There is a small amount of wear to the coating on the lucite. Good wearable vintage condition.
Pendant measures 3/4 of an inch in diameter.
The mustard seed is referred to in the Bible as a symbol of faith and hope. In Victorian mustard seed jewellery, the mustard seed is encapsulated in glass, creating an amulet. During this period, both men and women wore mustard seed jewellery. Women wore mustard seed necklaces, brooches, bracelets and charms
