The Food Of Love

Music and love are perfectly intertwined in this famous opening line from one of Shakespeare's most loved comedies, Twelfth Night; or, What You Will. The title refers to the twelfth night after Christmas, the feast of Epiphany, primarily a Christian festival, but also in Shakespeare's time a night of revelry and masque. This provides a basis for the plot, which revolves around music, love, mistaken identity and disguise. The quote is finely engraved on a ribbon of precious metal forming a treble or G clef, reflecting the message.

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.
