Hamlet is widely accepted as Shakespeare's masterpiece. Like a mirror, the play reflects the concerns of each generation who perform it, making it relevant in endlessly new and different ways. It offers eloquent insights into many aspects of life. But perhaps the most important is the struggle to find the truth in one's own life, one's own path which, of course, is seldom a straight line. It has been engraved on an organic pendant with the words meandering along a bisected path similar to the path of a river.

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.
