Thoreau wrote his most famous work, Walden, while living on Walden Pond. It is an account of his solitary existence, living in close harmony with nature. He was a true champion of the individual and the environment as reflected in this quotation, which has been widely attributed to him. It is engraved on a designer pendant in the form of an artist's palette, a great graduation jewelry gift, to encourage us all to paint a more imaginative existence for ourselves, but also implicitly to protect the natural world for the inspiration it provides to us all.
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.
