This is an antique sterling silver Edwardian anchor from 1912. The anchor is inscribed with the word “Fideliter,” which is Latin for “Faithful.” Originally a woman’s broach, the anchor has been fashioned into a necklace by vintage jewelry designers, Intellectual Property. It is presented on a double strand of knotted leather, with a sterling silver toggle.
Searching the braderies and antique shops throughout Europe, the founders of Intellectual Property, Mary and Hallie, specialize in finding unique antique medals and transforming them into one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Their designs highlight the legacy and integrity of the original pieces, artfully bringing the past into the present.
