This silver necklace is adapted from a ring, now in the collection of the British Museum. It is engraved in Latin 'love conquers all' in period script, a European style jewelry. The full quote from the Roman poet Virgil's Eclogues X, 69 dated to 38 BCE is 'omnia vincit amor et nos cedars amori' or 'love conquers all; let us too, yield to love!' A passionate declaration that speaks to us across the centuries and is sure to inspire the adventurous.
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.
