A Precious Memory
Laying aside her dressing gown, she reverently picked up her mourning dress. With a shudder, her shoulders collapsed in on themselves. After a brief moment, blotting the tears from her eyes with William's monogrammed handkerchief, she straightened back up. She must be strong...her family needed her now more than ever. After 50 years of marriage, the rock of her family had passed. Even though it had only happened last week, she felt as though she had aged a year after losing her dear William. As she made her way to the awaiting carriage, she wondered if the jeweler she had commissioned had completed the pendants bearing William's monogram. She, her daughter, and her granddaughters would now carry the pendants in remembrance of a man who meant so much to so many.

This “WZ” monogram is set in Victorian style, and is sourced from the book, Industrial Monograms, by Martin Gerlach of Vienna, Austria (1881). The very intricate detail behind the monogram gives this piece another level of interest. The bail was rolled into the back giving this piece a scroll-like appearance.
