The Signature Envelope Necklace is a very personal piece. By Leahy began from a love for jewellery-making, and I delight in every item of jewellery that I bring from start to finish on my bench in Galway, on the West Coast of Ireland.
Slowly and meticulously hand-carved in wax, the Signature Envelope Necklace began to take shape.
The delicate wax carving was transformed into a master mould, from which each Signature Envelope Necklace is now individually produced.
But the hand-making process doesn't stop there.
Once they are given their final file and first polish, each Signature Envelope is assembled. The inner Slip is inserted into the envelope and the chain is attached to the pendant.
Then the necklace goes through a series of polishing rounds to bring it to its final high-polish finish. Lastly, it is cleaned with a soft polishing cloth.
As part of the process, each necklace is stamped with the official seal of approval – a hallmark by the Assay Office which is nestled away on the grounds of Dublin Castle. The hallmark guarantees the purity and quality of the precious metal. Whether you are purchasing an 18ct gold, 9ct gold, rose gold, sterling silver, or white gold piece, you’ll see the corresponding stamp on the base of the envelope. More information on hallmarking can be found here.
You will also receive a little card sharing the story behind the brand and helpful tips on how to care for the piece. Every item is shipped securely by registered post, via An Post.
The envelope pendant measures, height 8mm, length 15mm, width 5mm. The inner slip measures, height 6mm, length 11mm.
