The softly formed, undulating teardrop is engraved with a memorial inscription probably of 17th century origin. The poesy tradition of engraved jewelry is most often associated with love, friendship, marriage and devotion but examples of memorial jewelry exist as early as Roman times and have been made throughout the centuries. This necklace is a continuation of a long tradition and its organic shape is designed purposely to touch and remember.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
