This sterling silver necklace is finely engraved with a quotation from the famous Shakespeare play Hamlet.
The inscription reads: "And this above all: to thine own self be true" - William Shakespeare, Hamlet.
The elliptical shape of the pendant is known as a Möbius strip, after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868]. It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it became accepted as a symbol for infinity, an appropriate and symbolic form for these memorable inscriptions.
Ideal as a gift.
