Inscription: X XO XOX XOXO Who doesn't love hugs and kisses? A message of love in the ancient symbols X and O, kisses and hugs, in an increasing sequence. Some say that when illiteracy was widespread a person would mark a legal document with an X and then to affirm the integrity of their "signature", the X was kissed as a solemn oath, the O thus symbolizing the mouth. Others claim the X and O are merely pictograms of a kiss and the enfolding arms of a hug. Whatever is true, these symbols are now recognized around the world and make us smile with delight.
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.
