Good luck silver sixpence
Solid sterling silver – Recycled silver sixpence
These lovely little lucky 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 sixpence. You are welcome to choose the lucky sixpence as a keepsake lucky token to be carried in a purse or wallet. If this option is chosen the design will be created without the necklace loop so it sits flat in a pocket or purse.
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.
