Twelve years after 9/11, our hearts are still heavy for the loved ones of all who perished at the hands of terrorists. As we remember that fateful day, whether through acts of service, moments of silence or simply slipping on a piece of patriotic jewelry, we stand with the families and friends of all those who lost their lives, honor those who sacrifice to protect us and express our gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy.
The American Flag Ribbon Pendant in Sterling Silver provides an ideal way to remember those who lost their lives 12 years ago. The front of this colorful 18mm x 31mm piece depicts the stars and stripes on a gracefully curving ribbon, while the words “remember always” are engraved into the shining back. This piece is an always-appropriate way to help ensure that you never forget what happened on September 11, 2001.
However, this day of remembrance isn’t just about commemorating those whose lives were taken on 9/11—it’s also about honoring the bravery and sacrifice of those who gave their lives to save others, both in the face of disaster at home and in our military. A piece of military jewelry like the U.S. Army Cross Pendant in 14K Gold is a great way to show your support for our armed forces. This warm, gleaming pendant places an engraved U.S. Army medallion in the center of a cross, the arms of which are accented with intertwining Celtic motifs. At 1 1/8″ tall and 13/16″ wide, this is the perfect piece for today and every day. This impactful pendant is also available in sterling silver, as well as in variations for other branches of the U.S. military.
Today is also about expressing gratitude for the liberties with which we are blessed. In a speech this morning, President Obama said,
“Let us have the confidence in the values that make us American, which we must never lose, the shining liberties that make us a beacon of the world; the rich diversity that makes us stronger, the unity and commitment to one another that we sustain on this National Day of Service and Remembrance.”
If you’d like a piece that expresses your gratitude for the freedoms you enjoy, try the Statue of Liberty Pendant in 14K Two-Tone Gold. This eye-catching piece depicts Lady Liberty in gleaming 14K white gold and places it on a 14K yellow gold medallion that displays the American flag. It’s the perfect way to remember and to look forward.
