Freshwater Pearl bracelet with silver button charm
A nostalgic little bracelet made from freshwater pearls, strung on silk and featuring our classic, cute as a button charm!
Handmade in Ireland our unique designs have won several awards in both Ireland and the U.K. The perfect gift for those who like something unique and well made, and this particular piece is perfect for a classic style wedding. It touches on the memories we all have associated with our mothers and grandmothers and the traditions we want to pass on to our own children.
The original design was inspired by my Mother's button tin. I designed this concept because when I was younger my mum would make my clothes and I remembered playing with the buttons.
These bracelets are made from freshwater pearls strung and knotted individually on silk. They are available in a variety of colours, White, Pink, Peach, grey and black peacock. We can also mix colours at your request, generally pink, peach and white are lovely and warm together. They can also be stacked and worn together as shown in the main image.
Please note that all of our pearls are natural and as their colour occurs in nature they vary from time to time. Because the pearls are natural they also will have slight imperfections in their surface. The shape or type of pearl we use are called potatoes and the size of the pearls we use are between 0.45cm and 0.5cm.
We also have several options for putting a name or message on your piece.
Engraving is usually on the back of the button and space is limited as we can only fit a maximum of 6 characters on this size. It is beautifully delicate but does not wear well over a long period of time because the silver is soft and can become scratched.
We can also offer stamping, each letter is stamped into the piece individually so can be maneuvered to fit more on the back of the button. It is deeper and more durable in the long term. Approximately 10 letters will fit.
If in doubt you can contact us to discuss your customising via the " Ask the seller a question " button on each page.
This style bracelet is handmade using solid sterling silver, freshwater pearls and silk thread. Silver is a soft porous metal and will go dull with wear. Always keep your pearls away from harsh chemicals such as, hand creams, perfumes or moisturisers and wipe with a soft cloth after wearing to prolong the shine and lusture. Do not get pearls wet, It will damage the core of the pearl and will also damage the silk string causing it to snap.
This bracelet should not be worn in the swimming pool as chlorine seriously damages the surface and the pearls will be destroyed. Silver will tarnish over time or if left in a damp condition or mixed with other metals.
This bracelet is strung on silk and therefor it will stretch over time. Make sure your bracelet is the correct fit, if too tight it will get stretched and if too loose you run the risk of it catching in something and snapping. You may need to have your pearls restrung at least once a year to maintain them and keep your bracelet in good condition.
Diamonds and sapphires are hard wearing Gemstones which is why we chose to use these in our pieces. We set them down into the metal to protect them. If you would like to clean your piece at home use only a soft cloth on all parts of this bracelet and do not pull or stretch thread. To clean pearls just wipe with a soft cloth and try not to get fake tan on them. If something happens to your bracelet don't panic we can fix it for you!
