Used on precious metal since the 14th century the British hallmark is a beautiful thing to behold so why hide it on the inside!
Stamped down the front with a full set of clear hallmarks that date it to 1976 this fabulously retro silver ingot bar pendant comes complete with a long vintage Italian silver curb chain that is essential to the authentic look!
This ingot is a large 1 ounce size and it has a substantial heavy duty loop on the top. The back is personalised with a beautifully hand-engraved initial 'B' monogram (which can be easily polished out if that is your preference). The chain is heavy duty and has diamond cut links that add a gorgeous sparkle to the necklace.
Beautiful quality this is a great piece of original 1970s statement jewellery, madly collectable and an absolute classic of the era!
