Recycled silver shilling

These lovely little lucky charms are a great gift for yourself or a close friend. Each one is handcrafted from a genuine sterling silver pre 1919 English silver shilling.

Sterling silver was the choice material of all English Threepence's, Sixpence's, Shilling's, Florins, Half-Crowns and Crown coins before 1919. This presents a great opportunity to create precious metal recycled jewellery.

The vast majority of these coins have suffered substantial wear over their years of circulation. It is these coins which are not valued by most coin collectors. In most cases these coins are acquired to be melted down for the basic silver value. This disappointing truth means that all of the history, detailsand interest of the coin are lost forever. Recycling the coins allows these original details to survive and become conversation. Obviously it is important for the piece of jewellery to be desirable, wearable and beautiful!

To further personalise the pendant you are welcome to provide a set of initials, short name, date, etc which i can carve into the surface of the coin making it a truely personal piece of luck.

Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.

Size : Approx 19 mm diameter

Perfect item Review by Jemma

The necklace is beautiful as I knew it would be because I already have the same one myself bought for me by my mother in law about 4 years ago. She kept commenting on how nice it looked so we ordered her one of her very own. Super quality as usual and a lovely item. Thank you.

My daughter is going to Australia for an extended period and I wanted something small that she could wear all the time to remind her of home. This Lucky shilling is absolutely perfect - thank you so very much

Wonderful work. Thank you so much. Only slight problem was that I tried ordering 3 times last year, and had no response back, until I got through this time. I also sent a message after I had made this last order, and got no response either. Please check your post. Thank you again though.

Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace. It also makes a fabulous feature of the handmade hook catch (and star if chosen).

The necklace length you choose includes the length of the actual pendant. Do not worry about the pendant dimensions we will take care of your order. Order the necklace length you would normally wear and the necklace you receive will sit in the perfect position.
