This American jewelry piece includes a quotation by Abraham Lincoln and is surrounded by myth as well as facts. But what we do know is that he was guided by his mother, Nancy, and following her death when he was nine, his stepmother, Sarah, as evidenced by this phrase recorded by Lincoln's law partner William Herndon. There is some controversy as to whether he was referring to his mother or stepmother but it matters little; the sentiment is clear. The engraved silver or gold heart shown here is composed of interlocking ribbons that create a heartfelt Mother's Day or birthday gift for moms.
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.
