This sterling silver bangle would make an ideal 21st birthday gift. It is handcrafted and features two bangles that are connected via a small, free-moving sterling silver ring. It is a standard size, measuring approximately 6.5cm in diameter and features a wonderful textured finish. It comes presented on a complimentary gift card bearing the message 'Two bangles to remember each decade and a shiny ring to celebrate your special 21st year!'. We also make a 21st birthday necklace that can be paired with this bracelet to create the ultimate 21st birthday jewellery set.
If you're looking for an extra special 21st gift for your 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 milestone birthday gift that will stand the test of time.
As soon as we receive your order one of our trained silversmiths will begin work on your 21st birthday bangle. They will start by measuring out and cutting various lengths of 2mm 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. A bench block and several texturing hammers are then used to create the hammered effect that will be unique to your particular piece of jewellery. All the component parts have now been individually handcrafted and need to be put together by cutting into them, connecting them together and once again soldering them closed.
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.
