An ideal personal gift for an 80th birthday celebration or an anniversary gift. This piece is made using an original lucky jenny wren British farthing, featuring Britain’s smallest bird for the smallest denomination of coin.
Minted in 1938, this wren farthing has been cleaned by hand and drilled, with a rose gold vermeil jump ring added to a rose gold vermeil 18inch ball chain. Each ball is 1mm diameter.
The design fastens at the back and the chain and findings are of excellent quality.
Vermeil is gold thickly plated over sterling silver. The rose gold colour matches against the coppery warmth of the farthing coin and is a beautiful colsolidation of the old and the new.
