A stylish and unique personalised silver name necklace, each one individually designed and handcut. A handmade original perfect for birthdays, anniversaries and bridesmaids.
Popular with people seeking a truly classic and individual present, these necklaces are popular for brides-to-be, anniversaries and teenagers, often given as memorable gifts for those special birthdays. I've made many for new-mums with their son or daughter's name instead of their own,
These sterling silver name necklaces begin with a sketch based on my handwriting rather than a font. From a piece of silver sheet individually textured with lace, I handcut the name using a tiny saw blade. Using watchmakers files, I smooth the edges, and solder on chain and clasp, and polish it to a bright 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). The name itself remains the same size whatever length of chain you choose.
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 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.
