This personalised 1st anniversary necklace features a pendant made up from two interlinked and free-moving sterling silver rings and a cute mini-heart charm. Because of the way the circles are entwined this type of pendant is traditionally worn as a symbol of strength, unity and everlasting love, making it the ideal choice if you're looking for a necklace that can be personalised with the names of a happy couple.
The special meaning behind the necklace is highlighted on a complimentary gift card bearing the title 'Happy 1st Anniversary' and message 'You and Me - Forever Linked, Forever Loved'.
As soon as we receive your order one of our trained silversmiths will begin work on your necklace. They will start by measuring out and cutting two equal 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 rings are then gently flattened to create just enough space for your chosen names, words or dates which are then skilfully hand-stamped onto the silver in accordance with your personalisation instructions. Both rings have now been individually handcrafted and now need to be put together to form the actual interlocking pendant. This process involves carefully cutting into one ring, joining it with the other one and soldering it closed. A heart charm is then attached via a soldered jump ring.
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. A member of our team will now measure out and cut an applicable length of chain based on your specific requirements and attach a jump ring and clasp to either end.
Finally it's off to packaging and dispatch where your necklace 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.
