A commemorative piece of heirloom jewellery

Something so special can be given new life to ensure the memory lives on for many years to come.

A customer had a military ‘dog tag’ from World War 2 which he wished to commemorate.

This involved making a replica of the tag into a pendant, providing an item of jewellery the client could wear while preserving the original.

Made in rose gold (rather than the original in stainless steel) and later fitted with a bail so it could be worn as a pendant, this piece is the perfect item of mens jewellery giving new life to memories.

We are very lucky to participate in these joyful moments with families over the decades. It isn’t about the new items of jewellery but preserving the old.

Have an item you would like to preserve? Contact us here to enquire.
