This sterling silver pendant is inscribed with, "My mother, my friend through thick and thin." This expression is at least as old as Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales {c. 1380}. It originated at a time when many people's fortunes depended on their forests; thick woods and thin woods; easy times and difficult times. Its meaning remains remarkably unchanged over the centuries and speaks to us today about the special bond of love between a mother and daughter. It is inscribed on a mobius pendant for mom, the symbol for infinity, making the inscribed message limitless.
Colonial Williamsburg's DeWitt Wallace Collections and Conservation Building contains a small sampling of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century jewelry. The pieces are valued more for their beauty, or their historical associations, than their monetary worth. Precious and semiprecious stones - diamonds, rubies, emeralds, topaz, and garnets - were as highly prized in the colonial period as they are today, as were gold and silver.
