This sterling silver pendant is inscribed with, "And though she be but little, she is fierce," punctuated by thunderbolts. The quote is from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Act 3 Scene 2. The comedy was written between 1590 and 1597, and is one of Shakespeare's most popular works. The play has been adapted for ballet, film, television and a variety of musicals, attesting to its appeal. Certainly this phrase resonates with many people, small and large. 18" Chain.

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.
