A Mothers Love - A unique and thoughtful gift for mom, this sterling silver wax seal pendant is made using the original wax seal that dates to the mid 1800's and symbolizes the duties of a parent or parental love.

Meaning 

A mother pelican is pictured dashing her chest to feed her two babies, surrounded by the caption "Tout Pour les Minne" which translates to "I do it for mine" or "I do it for my family".

Self-sacrifice and charitable nature; When feeding her young ("in her piety"), symbolizes the duties of a parent or parental love. A mother feeding her little baby pelicans is rooted in an ancient legend that was in time of famine, the mother pelican wounded herself, striking her breast with her beak to feed her young with her blood to prevent starvation. Another version of the legend was that the mother fed her dying young with her blood to revive them from death, but in turn lost her own life.

We have a great blog post that walks you through How to Select the Perfect Necklace Chain

Keep in mind that most jewelry is delicate to some degree. Unfortunately, no matter what you do to protect it, metal will dull and tarnish over time. Contact with lotion, perfume, and daily perspiration will eventually take its toll on jewelry. Moisture and humidly make this happen even faster.

We have also found that if you live close to the ocean or in an area that is more humid, your jewelry may need extra care to keep it looking shiny and new. And, as convenient as it may be to store your jewelry in the bathroom, this too is a bad idea. Store your jewelry in airtight containers or a resealable plastic bag when not in use, this will protect your piece from humidity and prevent tarnishing and scratches when not in use.

A clever little trick is to place a piece of chalk or a silica packet, (you know the kind that comes with a new pair of shoes or purse?) in your jewelry box to collect humidity and delay tarnish. For all of these situations you'll find that a quick wipe with a polishing cloth will return it's luster and remove any tarnish.

You love your jewelry, we get it, but we always recommend removing it before working out or doing household chores that cause perspiration, this will quickly dull your jewelry and you'll find the back of your pendant will look as though it's collected a layer of grime.

The most frequent question we receive is how to remove this build up. We sell little polishing pads that are cellular foam with permanently bonded micro-abrasives that will quickly remove the build up. 

We believe in extraordinary customer service and want you to be happy with your purchase.

    Shannon is a very nice seller, she took the time to create a charm with all my requirements by mailing me until understand exactly what I wanted. My charm it's just perfect ??. Packaging is so beautiful. It's the best I've ever received from a store. All the pendants have a beautiful silky finish so classy. Excellent workmanship ??.

    Could not have loved this more. My mother couldn't believe how beautiful this necklace was when I gave it to her at my wedding. She hasn't taken it off since. Truly amazing pieces.

    Necklace was ordered at the end of November and was made and delivered with a week to spare for Christmas! It is beautiful and reflects the individual work and craftsmanship put into it. My mother was moved to tears receiving it. It arrived very well presented and ready to give along with a written description of the meaning behind the seal. All in all I would purchase from this seller again, her work is stunning and I am very pleased with what I have received.

    This necklace was even more beautiful than it looks in the pictures, and it is the perfect gift my friend expecting twins. It arrived beautifully packaged and with a little card detailing the symbolism behind the charm. Shannon was excellent to work with, and she even shipped it out for me the week of Christmas. She'll be my go-to for future jewelry needs.
