An individual sterling silver locket necklace featuring a gold or rose gold vermeil bee charm and the option of a semi-precious birthstone.
The popularity of lockets goes from strength to strength as we all look for jewellery which has meaning and is not disposable. At Lime Tree Design we take classic pieces and give them a contemporary twist. This is an ideal locket for someone who likes the idea of a traditional locket but wants a cleaner look. The bee is a charming symbol of home, industry and sweetness and opens with space for two photos inside.
This makes a wonderful present for a special birthday like an 18th, 21st or 30th or a christening or young mum who'd like pictures of her children inside. I've also made these for girlfriends, engagements, wedding presents and a 60th birthday.
The locket can be personalised by engraving and is available with a choice of optional birthstones. You can choose chain style and length.
Locket comes gift boxed.
Locket and chain are made from modern sterling silver. Rub with silver cloth provided to remove any tarnish.
All fittings are sterling silver/925. Do not dip birthstones in silver dip as you will damage the stone.
Standard chain length measures approx 40cm /16". The locket is 2cm long (2.5cm including bail) and 1.5cm wide.
The bee is gold or rose gold vermeil which is 18 carat gold or rose gold plated onto a sterling silver base. It is a surface treatment and will fade over time. Be careful with sun cream or perfumes, take off before swimming or bathing. Do not use metal cleaners on vermeil as you will remove the plate.
Due to the current pandemic we are finding some orders are taking longer to arrive than usual. We aim to process orders and dispatch within 1-2 working days, Monday to Friday. Orders are sent Royal Mail first class signed for, Tracked 24, or Special Delivery or by UPS courier depending on the item. There is no charge for standard delivery in the UK. Delivery time would normally be 1-2 days after dispatch. We are finding Royal Mail's service is a bit patchy at the moment and it can take considerably longer for their 24 hours sevice to be delivered. Whilst we send most of our items tracked and signed for, the delivery services are no longer taking personal signatures for items. However they are signing on behalf of customers once it has been received. If you have a deadline please let us know and we will try to ensure you item is there in time. You can choose an express delivery option which goes Royal Mail Guaranteed by 1pm next day - the cut off for same day dispatch is 12.00. Again Royal Mail are no longer guaranteeing by 1pm delivery and they are not offering a Saturday delivery service. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time. If you wish to phone and discuss your options, we will be happy to advise.
