A unique gift to give a bride on her wedding day or at her bridal shower. It is true elegance and utterly unique. This farthing coin signifies ‘something old’ and comes with ways to personalise your gift even further according to the rhyme…
‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… and a silver sixpence for her shoe’.
Made as a thoughtful way to embrace this season’s new colours, the coppery gold colour of the farthing works perfectly here and is a stunning keepsake gift for any bride to be.
The coin is a 20mm wide real jenny wren farthing from the British Royal Mint. Dates may be different to the photos but the coin design will be the same.
Something old – the jenny wren farthing (made of bronze)
Something new – a rose gold bail to string onto ribbon or chain
Something borrowed – a freshwater pearl borrowed from the ocean, in peacock grey or white/ivory
Something blue – A length of real silk navy ribbon measuring 40cm
And a silver sixpence for her shoe – the sixpence is an optional extra. If you would like one of these, it is said a sixpence placed in the left shoe of the bride will bring luck on her special day. This tradition has been observed for over 100 years!
