A Love for Ampersands

My favorite symbol of all is the ampersand. I’ve got more than one piece of art in my house dedicated to it, own more than one “&” necklace, and I’ve sat on getting an ampersand tattoo for years (the only thing holding me back is that I’ve changed my mind on font, design, and location over and over and I’m afraid of commitment).

There’s something elegant and fun about ampersands. And it’s a symbol with a nice history to it — it’s from the Latin word “et,” which means “and,” which is why when you look at an “&” in different fonts, sometimes it looks like an “e” and a “t.”

If you, like me, love ampersands, then you’ll want to consider purchasing these beautiful ampersand items.



What a delicious collection of ampersand necklaces. At $15 each, you can own this one in multiple colors.
