The handshake or representation of clasped hands dates back to the Victorian-Era and represents a farewell to earthly existence and God's welcome into heaven. It may also indicate a relationship between the deceased and the loved ones they left behind.
Beautiful clasped hands I took from a vintage postcard, on gold tone chain with vintage beads rescued from various vintage necklaces.
Necklace rests on upper chest.
A very unique conversation starter & a great gift for someone who has recently lost a love one.
