This cute birthstone necklace is a recycled sterling silver star, which is hammered on one side and plain on the other so is reversible. Please choose the birthstone month from the drop down list. If you would like an initial stamped in the centre please leave a note with your order saying which side and whether you would like it in black or uncoloured.The star measures c. 1.8 cm in length and 1.2 cm across, it is cut by hand from recycled silver sheet using a piercing , saw so each star is a little different and unique to the wearer :) Once it has been sanded, hammered, soldered and polished the item is coated in a lacquer to prevent tarnish and hung on an 18" recycled silver chain. The birthstone is a Swarovski pearl element bead; layered around a crystal core. These items are made to order so please allow up to a week extra time, and a little more around the holiday season. They are packaged in a recycled pillow box or gift wrapped in a recycled white jewellery box with recycled ribbon. They are posted in recyclable packaging.
