“Inscribe all human effort with one word…”

I’ve always loved jewelry that is inscribed or has some sort of writing on it.   One of my favorite necklaces is a simple silver pendant that says “Wish” on one side and “Believe” on the other.  It’s not inscribed exactly, but the idea is there.  I bought it right before I graduated from college, when my job prospects were slim to none and I had no idea what I was going to do with my life.

It was a rough period in my life, leave me alone,  I don’t want to talk about it.  ANYWAY.  I don’t know what it is.  Inscribed/engraved pieces look vintage-y and heirloom-y and just make me happy, so I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorites for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
