Have you or someone in your life had a pause in your life? The semicolon represents a momentary pause and the ampersand is the Latin symbol for the and in your life. In life there can be a pause, but what comes next? This necklace represents the pauses in life, we sometimes find ourselves in followed by the “and” – the what comes next. You are the author of your own beautiful life story.
This necklace was designed to support, uplift and remind someone in their journey that life is filled with pauses, often followed by beautiful stories. This necklace was made with rose gold filled, gold filled, and sterling silver discs, chains and components in order to be a necklace that can be treasured for years to come.
This necklace is made with two 13mm (1/2 inch) discs stamped with a semicolon and the ampersand sign, as well as a 9mm (3/8 inch) disc with an initial.
Gold filled and rose gold filled jewelry contains 100% more real gold than gold plated jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is made with a thick layer of real solid 14k gold. Gold filled jewelry has the advantage of being tarnish resistant and durable. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors, and can easily be worn by people with sensitive skin.
Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver and considered a precious metal. The remaining 7.5% of the alloy is usually copper, adding strength while preserving the appearance of the pure silver. Sterling silver is also okay for most sensitive skin.
Both sterling silver and gold filled jewelry will tarnish less if stored appropriately – in something airtight – and kept clean and dry. I have found that the more I wear my sterling silver jewelry, the less it tarnishes.
All sterling silver jewelry will come with an anti tarnish paper and all gold filled, sterling silver and rose gold filled jewelry will come with a polishing cloth to help with the care of your jewelry purchased through GiGisPetals. Jewelry that tarnishes can easily be repolished and look as good as new!
