Named for Nathaniel Hawthorne - an American novelist, dark romantic, and short story writer. Our favourite quote from Nathaniel reads; "Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you".
One of the most widely used ornaments in medieval Europe was the ring. It was attributed ever more symbolic and religious value, as well as ever greater importance as a talisman, good omen, and sign of office, and, as always, it served as a seal.
