Louisa May Alcott Heart

Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, published in 1868, is one of the great classics of American literature. The novel is drawn from her own experience of childhood in Concord, Massachusetts, where her home, Orchard House is now an historic house museum. Her mother Abigail's inspirational phrase, 'hope and keep busy', is often repeated in Alcott's works, including Little Women. It has here been engraved on a pendant of folk art shape and decoration, like those worn at the time.

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.
