  • Hugs & Kisses Mini

    A message of love in the ancient symbols x and o: kisses and hugs in an increasing sequence. Some say that when illiteracy was widespread, a person would mark a legal document with an x, and then, to affirm the integrity of their "signature," the x was kissed as a solemn oath. Others claim the x and o are merely pictograms of a kiss and the enfolding arms of a hug. Whatever is true, these symbols are now recognized around the world and make us smile with delight; a perfect gift for friend, family or romantic love.

    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.


    mobius
    The mobius is our signature shape and we were one of the first jewelers to deduce how to reproduce it via the lost wax casting method. Named after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868], the mobius represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end or one of infinite length. As such, it became accepted as a symbol for infinity. The oval mobius bracelets fit comfortably, turning easily on the wrist, so that the wearer can be reminded of the message at a glance. The single mobius necklace moves on the chain when worn, changing its appearance continually, while the message remains constant. Our new double mobius necklace with its flowing, complex shape is an exciting addition to the collection, allowing for a longer message than the single mobius. The engraved message on these pieces repeats around the plane into infinity.
