Recycled silver threepence

These lovely little lucky personalised threepence charms are a great gift for yourself or anyone you know who, well anyone really!! Each one is handcrafted from a genuine sterling silver pre 1919 English silver threepence. Each and every one of these is handmade in Cambridge with the personal initial of your choice.

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!

Good luck and best wishes. Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.

Size : Approx 16 mm diameter

I bought this as a birthday present for my partner after she lost the first necklace I ever gave her. I wanted something really special, and you certainly delivered that. The necklace arrived the day before her birthday, and I didn't want to unwrap it from its lovely wrapping (the paper hearts were a really nice touch!), so I didn't see it until she opened her gift on her birthday. It is, quite simply, exquisite. The craftsmanship that's gone into making it is mind-blowing. We both love that it's an upcycled piece as well.
The only slight minus point goes to the leather cord, which untied itself within an hour of her putting it on. Luckily, we had a spare silver chain which looks lovely.
She wears it every day and really loves it, so thank you!

I absolutely love my three beautiful lucky threepences, thank you. I haven't taken them off! They are beautifully made and bear the initials of my husband and two children - such a creative and original way to remind myself of the important stuff in life. I love the fact that the coins have a history of their own and have been given a new life, not least because I bought them with some money left to me by my late Nan who was born in the early 1900s and highly approved of recycling. I now have my sights set on an angelphant necklace and will start dropping heavy hints! Thank you once again.
