This pendant is made using an antique Victorian “seal wheel” dating back to the late 1700’s, early 1800’s. Whimsical seals that conveyed the sentiments of the sender were popular with the ladies of the Victorian era, who would have these wheels with various sentiments to choose from. This antique may have sealed marriage proposals, words of comfort to a dear friend…
Representing the virtue of silence, the rebus meaning “be silent” with the bee is a reminder that silence is golden. Be silent, or think before you speak.
This pendant is made out of fine silver (99.9% pure), pure copper or pure bronze, and hand stamped with an antique Victorian wax seal of a bee, with the word “silent” written below.
Each pendant is stamped, sanded, polished and oxidized for an antique look. Because they are hand-stamped individually and made to order, these pendants are truly unique, and no two pendants are the same (unlike pendants cast from a mold).
DIMENSIONS: The pendant is slightly larger than 1/2″ across.
This listing is for the PENDANT ONLY and does not necessarily include a chain.
CHAIN LENGTH: If you choose to purchase the pendant on a chain, the chain is sterling silver, brass, gold plated brass or copper, 16″ long or 18″ long.
