Happy Independence Day! Today is the perfect day to check out Apples of Gold’s collection of patriotic jewelry!
An American Flag pendant is a lovely way to celebrate the 4th, and the American Flag Pendant in 14K White Gold is a timeless symbol of your love for the stars and stripes. Crafted from solid 14K white gold and accented with colored enamel, this is a lasting emblem of your patriotism.
The 4th of July is a celebration of the fact that freedom is worth fighting for. The Battle of Gettysburg was fought 150 years ago on the days leading up to Independence Day, and several months later President Abraham Lincoln spoke of the significance of the liberties for which his countrymen fought, both in the War for Independence and in the Civil War which was still raging:
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.”
Lincoln continued his brief Gettysburg address by charging those who listened to ensure that those who lost their lives for the cause of liberty did not die in vain:
“that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
The Statue of Liberty Pendant in 14K Two-Tone Gold is striking symbol of this hard-won liberty. A 14K white gold image of the Statue of Liberty stands out against a medallion of yellow gold to create an eye-catching beacon of freedom.
A piece of patriotic jewelry is a lovely way to declare your love for your nation and the freedom you enjoy. Happy 4th of July!
