Prenoa hand makes this design for you, here in historic Stamford, UK. Prenoa means ‘being true to what is, and what has been’ meaning your design is not only about the giving, but the journey. We hope this necklace will bring love and good fortune always.
The half penny was worth 1/2d in old imperial money. There were 240 pence (d) in a pound, so 480 of these coins made one pound. They were minted until 1967, with the design changing very little since the 1930’s. Each measures 22m in diameter, so the lovely ship is very visible and perfect as a pendant.
Gift boxed and ready for giving. Keep this item clean with regular care.
