This simple artistic symbol of family love makes a great gift and a powerful statement that is sure to warm the heart of any mother - no matter the age of her children. Measuring approximately 1 inch L x 1/2 inch W, this original Loving Family pendant depicts a loving mother and two children whose touching embrace forms a heart. A silver matte finish center adds dimension in contrast to the polished finish of the outer part of the pendant. Pendant is crafted from .925 sterling silver and finished with a tarnish-resistant coating. A sentimental favorite, this pendant comes ready to wear on a delicate 18 inch L sterling silver box chain with spring ring clasp. Pendant also looks great on a snake chain such as B00062BISU (purchased separately), for those who prefer a heavier looking chain. Our jewelry is proudly made in America with US and imported parts. We do our part for the environment by crafting our jewelry from recycled .925 sterling silver. Loving Family gift box is made in China. *Note: The white silver matte finish in the center of each .925 sterling silver Loving Family pendant is created by sandblasting the inside of the pendant and then applying a silver finish to that area to create a dimensional look. Minute quantities of different metals can be utilized in the liquid bath to facilitate the bonding of both the silver finish and the protective clear plastic resin anti-tarnish e-coat finish to the surface of the .925 sterling silver Loving Family piece. These metals do not include nickel or any other ferromagnetic materials. We invite you to contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have regarding any of our Loving Family products.

Sterling Silver History
Experts believe that silver alloy, used today as sterling silver, originated in continental Europe in the 12th century. Pure silver was found to be a soft and easily damageable material. When combined with other metals, most commonly cooper, it produced a tougher material that could be heavily relied on. Throughout the next few centuries, sterling silver was used as currency and for household items. It was often used as silverware and became the material used in a proper table setting between 1840 and 1940 throughout the United States and Europe. Because of this popularity, silver companies began to grow. During this craze, companies began to experiment using sterling silver compositions in jewelry, as it was a material that was easy to mold into intricate designs and gave a luxurious look with its metallic finish. Today, sterling silver is widely used in all kinds of jewelry styles and shines as beautifully as other precious metals, with the benefit of affordable pricing.
Sterling Silver Composition
While pure silver can be combined with many different types of metals, sterling silver is created when combining pure silver with copper. Sterling silver jewelry can be composed with different amounts of copper but is most often seen with the .925 stamp, meaning that the composition is of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. This has been found to be a good combination for maintaining the silver's durability without harming its sparkle.
Caring for Your Sterling Silver Jewelry
Silver should not come into contact with harsh household chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, or chlorine. To avoid scratches, store silver in a lined jewelry box or pouch, as it is prone to tarnish as it naturally reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the air. Cleaning and wearing silver jewelry regularly will prevent this and help maintain its shine. Immediately upon noticing any discoloration, use a gentle polish made specifically for removing tarnish.
