I Have Wished For Thee Sterling Silver Necklace

An inscription on this sterling silver inspirational jewelry necklace by John James Audubon [1785-1851]. He had a talent for drawing and an interest in birds. He traveled to the remotest regions of the United States to produce his landmark watercolors and was often separated from his beloved wife, Lucy Bakewell Audubon. This romantic inscription is from a December 5, 1827 letter to her now in the collection of the New York Historical Society. The caption is wrapped around a soft organic heart shape; beautiful words of love for a modern day Valentine. Part of the Americana jewelry collection - a great gift for Valentine's day and of love.

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.
