This handmade necklace features two interconnected and free-moving sterling silver rings. One ring is slightly bigger than the other and both rings have a planished finish as a result of the handcrafting process which involves gently hammering them flat prior to hand-stamping. Some people call this type of design a double interlocking ring, while others prefer the term double circle necklace, but they are essentially the same thing. The joining of the two rings/circles represent strength, unity, protection and everlasting love. The necklace can be personalised in any number of ways but choosing to have the names of your children appear on each ring is one of our favourite options.
Larger Ring Diameter - 19.5 mm
Smaller Ring Diameter - 18 mm
If you're looking for an extra special gift for mum 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 children's names necklace. They will start by measuring out and cutting two different 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 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.
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.
