Using ivy as decoration dates back to Roman times and is associated with Bacchus (the Roman equivalent of the Greek Dionysus, god of wine and intoxication). Ivy was widely used in the wreaths created for the celebrations of the Winter solstice, it was associated with the Celtic Goddess, who kept life going through the harsh months of winter, and Holly was her God. It also served as a symbol of prosperity and charity, and thus it was adopted by the early Christians, for whom it was a reminder to help the less fortunate.
Christmas Day Ivy Necklace
Remove the red ribbon and thread it through your favourite silver chain for a festive Christmas Dinner Necklace.
Our beautifully detailed pewter ivy is 55 mm (2.25") wide and 60 mm (2.4") tall and is complete with red hanging ribbon. Packaged in an organza gift bag. However, if you select gift wrapping, the ivy decoration will come in a gift wrapped black presentation box.
Handmade English Pewter Ivy Christmas Gifts
Each Ivy leaf is hand crafted from polished, solid lead-free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter) and completely nickel-free.
Because our designs are all created in solid metal, the surface of your Ivy leaf will never flake like cheap plated ivy leaves found on the internet. To clean (if ever), simply wash with warm soapy water.
All our designs are made exclusively by us in our studio workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
