Acorn Oak Leaf Christening Necklace in Personalised Box
A delicate oak leaf and acorn on an 18" Sterling Silver chain, presented in a personalised keepsake pewter box with certificate.
Christening gifts for girls
Our beautiful Christening necklace is a finely detailed little acorn and a perfectly formed oak leaf.
The Little Acorns Christening keepsake box is adorned with an acorn nestled on a bed of oak leaves. The proverb "Great oaks from little acorns grow" is engraved on the underside of the box lid alongside a space for a hand-stamped message.
This lovely Christening gift for girls is designed to be enjoyed and used in their adult life, perhaps being re-presented at their 18th or 21st birthday
The "adult size" necklace is a lasting keepsake that can be used later in their life, long after the teddy bear picture frames and money boxes have been out grown and given to the charity shop.
We can fit up to 16 characters or spaces onto the underside of the box lid and It’s up to you what you want!
Mighty, strong, steadfast and enduring, the Oak tree, the very essence of England, symbolises: hospitality, stability, strength, honour, eternity, liberty and endurance.
The oak leaf is 15 mm (0.6”) wide and the little acorn is 14 mm (0.5”) tall. The Christening keepsake box is 5 cm (2”) in diameter and comes, with the rolled certificate, in a black presentation gift box.
The certificate does not specify Christening so it can be given for other occasions too, for example necklace for the Bride or Bridesmaid.
Our hand stamping uses traditional, industrial tools to indent every letter into the pewter. Variations in the marks made during this process are to be expected, and spacing and alignment are not precise; but it all adds to the charm and make your gift unique!
All Glover and Smith Christening designs are made from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter).
Because we use solid metal the surface of your Christening necklace and box will never flake like silver plated Christening gifts. To clean just wash with warm soapy water.
All our Christening designs are completely nickel free and made exclusively by us in Wiltshire, England.
