The Latin motto "Sustine et Abstine" which translates to "Bear and Forbear" or "Hold Off and Hold On" which means to be in control of ones self and destiny. This seal depicts a crest with 2 rampant lions supporting a shield and the banner with the motto.

This medallion is a reminder to endure what is difficult or hard to deal with, through patience one achieves all, even the impossible. Words to live by every day.

Frequently asked questions about ShannonWestmeyer

Your jewelry has been oxidized to bring out the detail of the charm so it is not recommended that you use any silver creams or dips to clean it. Simply clean with warm soapy water and buff with a soft polishing cloth until you're happy with the look. Store your jewelry in a resealable plastic bag to delay tarnishing and prevent scratches when not in use. We do not recommend wearing your jewelry in the ocean, pools or hot tubs.

We sell polishing pads in our shop. We highly recommend these little pads for restoring the luster to your jewelry and removing any tarnish that has built up - they really do the job!

Did you know that in most cases we use the actual antique was seal to create your jewelry?

Wax seals are typically small so be sure to read each listing as it includes the measurements of the wax seal charm, please take the time to read the listing carefully so you're not disappointed or surprised when you receive your jewelry!
We offer a few pieces that are personalized by stamping on the back with an antique French Typography set from the early 1800's. However we do not engrave pieces with names, dates or initials on the back as we simply are not equipped to do so.

You are welcome to take your piece to a jeweler that can assist you in engraving the back of any pendant we carry. PLEASE let us know as all of the Shannon Westmeyer Jewelry line is trademarked and stamped on the back.

If you have any questions please contact us through the "ASK A QUESTION" link before placing an order.

Custom orders or jewelry that's been personalized with a date, name or initials on the back is not returnable.
