This seal depicts a ship with the French caption "Telle est la Vie" meaning "Such is Life". An acceptance of the unpredictable fortunes of existence, take the good with the bad, make the most of it and above all get on with life!


The early uses of this phrase date from the mid 18th century; for example, Joseph Baretti's A Grammar of the Italian Language, 1762, translates "Cosi va'l mondo!" as "Such is life" and continues: "Such is life, that whatever is proposed, it is much easier to find reasons for rejecting than embracing."

"Such is life and life is such and after all it isn't much. First a cradle. Then a hearse. It might have been better, but it could have been worse" ~Norman Wisdom

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on" ~Robert Frost

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.
