This women's jewelry piece on one of Laurel Elliott's silver necklaces, showcases a quotation by Coleridge, 1798, from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. In these lovely lines the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge expresses his love and reverence for all that God created making this poem especially dear to all people concerned with animal welfare and the natural world. Coleridge was also a literary critic and philosopher and along with his friend William Wordsworth, a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets. He coined many familiar phrases, including the celebrated 'suspension of disbelief'.
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.
