Hands of Antwerp

 Brabo

 

At the time of Julius Caesar, the dreaded giant Druon Antigoon lived near the river Schelde. All passing ships had to pay him a heavy toll. Boatmen who refused to pay had their hand cut off. One day a Roman warvessel appeared on the river, with the Roman centurion "Silvius Brabo" on board.

Our Roman hero did not intend to pay and defeated the giant, cut off his hand and threw it into the water. Since then, this place was called  “Handwerpen” (throw the hand), later changed to “Antwerpen”.

Our hands are exclusive and are all made of semi-precious stones. You can wear them as a pendant. (size: 4x2cm.) Now available with silver chain!
