Whatever the origins of the ankh hieroglyph, its meaning is clearly as a symbol of life. When a powerful symbol such as this one is worn or carried about the person it becomes an amulet. Usually carried for protection from evil and illness, amulet charms were also used in different cultures and throughout history to bring good fortune, friendship, fertility or even love. These modern amulets have been designed for their tactile quality, with contemporary designs remembering the symbolism and wisdom of the ancients.

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 a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.
