This handmade sterling silver bangle would make a perfect gift for any mother or her daughter. Highlighting the special bond that the two of you share, this sentimental keepsake features the words 'Mother and Daughter * Forever Linked * Forever Loved'. The bangle comes with a free-moving, sterling silver ring which can be personalised with any name or date up to 12 characters in length.
If you're looking for an extra special gift for mum or your beloved daughter what could be better than a handmade piece of jewellery that was created just for her! No machines, no production line, just a skilled artisan sitting at a jewellery bench creating a fabulous keepsake that will stand the test of time.
As soon as we receive your order one of our trained silversmiths will begin work on your 'forever linked, forever loved' bangle. They will start by measuring out and cutting two separate lengths of 2.5mm sterling silver wire. Working with a series of hand tools they will then bend and shape the wire into circles and use a combination of solder and flux to join each piece together. Using a rawhide mallet they will then hammer the various parts onto a mandrel to make sure they are perfectly round and conform to the correct sizing's for this particular product. The bangle is now fully formed and can be gently flattened on a bench block to create just enough space for the standard text to be skilfully hand-stamped onto it. At the same time your chosen name, word or date will be added to the small ring. The final stage in this process involves joining the mini ring to the bangle.
After a quick trip to the Edinburgh assay office for hallmarking your item is now ready for the cleaning and polishing stage. The silversmith will use a combination of different sized files and sandpaper grits to make sure all soldered joins are invisible to the eye and smooth to the touch. A buffing wheel in combination with several polishing compounds are then skilfully applied to give your finished piece the shiny, mirror-like finish that it truly deserves.
Finally it's off to packaging and dispatch where your bangle will be given a final polish before being placed in a Pretty Serendipity gift box. As a little added extra we'll also send you a 'thank you' card which includes the name of the jewellery maker who was responsible for the creation of your one of a kind piece.
