A stylish and unique personalised silver name necklace, each one individually designed and hand cut. A handmade original perfect for Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries.
These necklaces are my best seller, and ever popular with people seeking a truly individual present for a special birthday, new mums, brides-to-be and teenagers, often given as memorable gifts for those special birthdays, like 13th, 18th or 21st, and also engagement and Hen-Night gifts.
Making these necklaces begins with a sketch based on my handwriting. From a piece of textured sterling silver sheet, I handcut out the name using a tiny saw blade. With watchmakers files, I file off the saw marks, and then solder on the chain and clasp, and polish it to a bright, textured finish.
Each one of these script name necklaces is completely original, handmade from start to finish by me in my workshop.
Now available in four lengths, the 14"/36cm perfect for a younger girl, 41cm/16" (short), 46cm/18" (medium), 50cm/20" (long).
You needn't have a name, of course, what about 'Love', 'Sweetheart' or 'Mummy', the choices are endless. I've made over 1400 now, but my favourites are Mrs Lumley/MrsG etc, often ordered by husbands for their wives on their wedding day! I've done names of businesses, new baby's names and nicknames.
If you would like to see a photo of the sketched word in advance, you can use the 'contact seller' button. Any particular requests, for instance not using a cursive or joined-up 's', please let me know in advance of placing your order.
Be sure to provide the correct spelling and capitalisation. Bespoke items are non-returnable, and the order, once placed, cannot be cancelled.
Names cannot be made with all capital letters as my style of writing doesn't make this possible.
The necklace arrives in a smart heavy duty cardboard black and silver box with a magnetic snap fastening. The words 'jemima lumley jewellery' are embossed in silver on the lid. Ribbon and free gift tag come for free, and standard gift wrapping (brown paper) is available free of charge. Luxury and Christmas wrap are available at an extra cost.
Sterling silver throughout, including clasp and chain.
All silver products should be kept in an air tight box when not being worn to slow down the rate of tarnishing. It's not advisable to wear necklaces while sleeping, exercising or swimming.
Sizes vary according to the length of the name. Letters are around 0.7cm to 1cm high, and a five letter word is approximately 2.5cm long. The thickness of the silver is 0.8mm, which is light and easy to wear, and yet robust. Silver is a very strong metal and will withstand daily wearing without becoming fragile.
The chain I use is curb style (for accurate image of it, please look at the pictures of the model wearing the necklace). This is extremely strong but looks dainty, and sits flat on the skin.
