The famous soliloquy in Shakespeare's Hamlet sees the Danish prince contemplating death and relative merits or perils of suicide. Thankfully this 18" sterling silver necklace with stamped pendant is neither as dark nor deep as the meaning of this often quoted phrase. Instead, it has fun with math: the quantity inside the absolute value brackets is not 2B; it is -2B. However, the absolute value is 2B. Two B or not two B... Delicate lightweight sterling silver cable chain is 18" with a spring ring clasp and sterling silver pendant is approximately 1/2".

Cost: $28.00 USD

Length: necklace - 18"


  • sterling silver cable chain with spring ring clasp
  • stamped sterling silver 1/2" pendant

Care & cleaning: Clean with a damp washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

The sterling silver chain is relatively strong but not indestructible and care should be taken with the pendant. As with all jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
