Made to order in variables of your choice, this pendant consisted of 3 bars of sterling silver, held together on an open, beaten jumpring*, which allows them to be separated or added to should that be wished
The bottom bar has significant coordiates stamped into it, the central one is textured with a skeleton leaf and the top has been beaten and has a 3mm blue sapphire and a 4mm green emerald cabochon set to the top, along with a sterling silver ball.
You can choose your gemstones, your textures and your shapes, as well as your text. Please message me to discuss your wishes - this price is a guide - depending on the stones you wish, and the amount of stamping, your price may well be lower.
The pendant shown hangs 45mm from the chain / thong and is 14mm wide at it's widest
All the metal is recycled sterlng silver and weighs just over 10g
*Although the total weight is greater than 7.78g, because each of the individual components can be removed there has not been a requirement to send this for formal hallmarking at London Assay office, which remains closed during the Covid 19 pandemic
Secret message, triple textured, dog tag pendant, with gemstones
Sterling Silver will eventually oxidise or tarnish. It's a natural process that can be slowed down by regular wear and by keeping unworn items away from the atmosphere. If you leave your jewellery out on display, this oxidisation will be faster. You can polish up your items, with a soft cloth, some silver polish, or a buffing cloth such as Town Talk, which is readily available from any high street jewellers in the UK
Fine silver is 99.9% silver, and because of this the tarnish rate is much, much slower. Again, a buff should do the job for polishing it back up. If I have patinated your silver already, be gentle when buffing!
Each piece should stand up to regular wear, but , as with all jewellery, please remove it before washing, using chemicals or applying perfume etc
Apply body lotion and perfume a few minutes before putting on your jewellery to help slow down tarnish
The sterling silver used in these items was sold to me by my bullion dealer as certified recycled.
The gemstones I use have been sold to me by reputable dealers as untreated (unless stated specifically in the listing). They are a natural, organic creation from the earth and each one will be slightly different. You can see examples of this on my Facebook page.
I select the stones that I think go together best for each project, hence my comments that each item is individual.
