Walt Whitman is widely revered as one of the greatest of American poets. The appreciation of his legacy has only grown further since his death in 1892. His major work, Leaves of Grass, is a compilation of poems he would continue to edit and revise throughout his life. This well known quotation, elegantly engraved in sterling silver on a pendant necklace, is from a poem entitled "The Untold Want". A lovely Americana jewelry piece.
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.
