There's a bible quote about "hope being an anchor for the soul" and throughout the last few centuries the anchor symbol was used again and again in jewelry. It was doubly meaningful during the periods when European countries sent young men on long sea voyages for commerce or war; both were dangerous and sailors often didn't make it home. Wearing an anchor was a sign of your steadfastness.
