What Lies Within

The quotation engraved on this Pi Disc necklace is attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson became the leading essayist of his day, a poet, and a preacher in the second Unitarian Church of Boston in 1829. He became a central figure of the philosophical movement known as transcendentalism, which held that reality is essentially mental or spiritual in nature. Whatever Emerson's philosophical reasoning, this quotation about the value and meaning of self-reliance is truly an inspirational one.

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.


pi-disc
Laurel Elliott's Pi Disc is a modern interpretation of the ancient Chinese form of a circle within a circle, an enduring symbol of nobility, purity, constancy and eternity.  The circle having no end is itself a symbol of infinity.  Its classic shape looks beautiful when worn, moving easily from day to night.  The chain can be knotted on the disc or simply slipped though the open circle providing an additional 2" in length.  It also can be used without a chain as a touchstone or keepsake for the pocket, desk or nightstand.
