A beautiful handmade sterling silver necklace with personalised heart charms.
This gorgeous necklace is the perfect gift for a loved one or special treat for yourself.
Every heart is handmade from scratch using two pieces of flattened sterling silver oval wire. Each piece is hand stamped with a personal message, name or date then formed into a heart and carefully soldered together. Popular personalisation includes family names and birth or wedding dates. Additional hearts are also available.
All pieces are entirely handmade to order and vary in size and length.
Every letter or number is hand stamped onto the silver (not engraved) and any irregularites are part of the charm and character.
The heart charms are hung on a 40cm fine silver trace chain but 45cm, 50cm and 60cm chains are also available. Please make sure you choose which length of chain you require in the options box when ordering.
Please specify the personalisation for each heart in the personalisation box when placing your order. You can have up to 9 characters per side (including punctuation and spacing) or you can leave one side blank if you prefer. Please type 'blank' in the personalisation box if no text is required and ensure all the details are correct when ordering.
The letter stamps I originally used were uppercase 'Dogtag' style but I later introduced 'Typewriter' style letters in upper and lowercase. If you have any preference please let me know or I will choose what I think will look best.
If you would like to order another heart without the chain to add to your collection please look at my 'Personalised Heart Necklace'.
Each item of jewellery is sent in my customised gift boxes and can be gift wrapped for free in complimenting paper and ribbon bow (I find this survives the post best).
A printed gift note is available on request when ordering or a hand written gift card can also be added if you message me and it all can be posted direct to a lucky recipient.
Each piece is made from solid british 925 sterling silver which is prone to tarnishing so please try and keep your jewellery packaged away in it's box when it's not being worn, ideally in acid free tissue paper.
Avoid contact with make up, perfumes, creams on the skin and water or chlorine as these may cause the silver to blacken.
To clean the necklace I would recommend buffing it with a silver cloth and occasionally dipping it in silver dip (available at most supermarkets). Please don't prolong contact with the dip and thoroughly rinse your piece, ideally gently scrubbing with a soft tooth brush and some washing up liquid before completely drying it.
Water will also weaken the enamel so please avoid swimmimg or bathing in your necklace.
The hearts are made using 3.5 x 2mm sterling silver oval wire and vary in length from 2cm to 4cm depending on the personalisation.
The letters are 2.5mm in size and I can use a mix of upper and lower case letters and have limited puctuation marks.
If you have any specific requests regarding the size and shape of the hearts please message me (i.e as small as possible) and if ordering more than two hearts you may want to tell me what size order you would prefer the extra hearts to be (i.e could the third heart be the smallest).
