Celtic-inspired sterling silver hair clip which I have hand woven from sterling silver into an intricate double twist design. I have then added hand cut sterling silver end pieces, polished to a mirror finish.
The metal clip on the back is a high quality, strong French-made barrette (nickel and lead free) and this is rivetted (not glued) onto the sterling silver front plate, ensuring it is extremely secure.
The clip is 80mm (approx) in length and the silver woven section is approximately 90mm long and 17mm wide at its widest point. The silver front plate gently curves following the shape of the clip.
Hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office – your assurance of the quality and authenticity of the materials used.
Beautifully presented in a lovely, ribbon-tied gift box and chiffon bag, with a “Caring for your Jewellery” card.
All about Hallmarking
In the UK it is illegal to sell or describe any item as silver if it is not hallmarked by one of the UK Assay Offices. Silver items are only exempt from hallmarking if they weigh under 7.8g. A hallmark is made up of three compulsory symbols:-
1. The Sponsor’s or Maker’s Mark.
2. Metal and fineness (purity) Mark – 925 for sterling silver and 999 for fine silver.
3. Assay Office Mark – mine have the castle, which is the mark for the Edinburgh Assay Office.
