Description

This curved heart shell is one of our best ever finds. Tumbled into a perfectly imperfect heart shape by the sea. It is smooth on the front with natural ridges running down the side. It has a lovely curve so it sits perfectly on its necklace. Solid sterling silver, as always.

Wearing It

This is a relatively light piece as far as Volant sterling silver jewellery goes, so its very comfortable and easy to wear. It’s unusual for it’s 3D appearance with that lovely curve, and that is what people tend to comment on. As the ridges are not pronounced it is easy to clean.

Beginnings

One of our early shell finds. From the beach in Torrox. This shell is so valuable to us – we have never seen another like it – we have taken a bronze cast of it in case it ever breaks.

Making It

We were surprised it replicated so well in sand/molten silver casting, due to the fact that the curve in it is actually classed as an overhang, and overhung pieces usually don’t get fabricated this way – bending would most often be used. This is a very popular piece. We have also been asked to use this shell on bangles and cuffs, which it does lend itself to and we will be adding to the website soon.

Looking After You

All new jewellery designs are tested to ensure you will be happy with them. Usually this is Cheryl’s task, although Robert tests the cufflinks. Firstly, all new designs are assessed for comfort. Also for durability, appropriate chain and chain length. Additionally we take note of comments made on the jewellery we are wearing. And we learn from and act upon all feedback. We won’t ship any jewellery we are not 100% happy with. Ultimately, you are protected with our easy returns policy.
