Anchor charms, jewelry and tattoos have been popular for centuries, and not just for sailors. Anchors not only show a love for the sea, but also are a symbol of strength and stability. An anchor can represent a person, place or belief that is always there for you: your rock, your anchor in stormy weather.
When you combine this symbolism with the anchor's close resemblance to a cross, it's no surprise that anchors are also a favorite symbol for many Christians: it’s a reminder that with Christ as your anchor in the tumultuous sea of life, your anchor gives hope and helps keep you steady throughout the storms of temptation and upheaval.
