A metal stamped, personalised necklace featuring a Scottish Thistle charm hanging from an 18 inch (45cms) stainless steel chain (so won't ever tarnish), a crystal bead depicting a birthstone and a hand stamped initial tag will make a perfect gift.
Hand Stamping, also known as Metal Stamping, is the process of using a hammer to imprint various designs, letters and numbers onto metal. Aluminium is a perfect medium for hand stamping: it is lightweight, doesn't tarnish, and because it doesn't contain lead or nickel, is practically hypoallergenic. Additionally, aluminium doesn't react to oils, acids or moisture as some other metals do.
Each character or design is stamped individually before being polished for a beautiful finish. Not to be confused with machine engraving, hand stamped items are unique. Thanks to the nature of the process, there may be slight differences in the depth or spacing of the characters; this adds to the distinctive appearance of each piece and is not a flaw. Another feature of hand stamped elements is the displacement of the metal, which can sometimes be seen on its reverse side. Again, this isn't a flaw but a feature that adds to its individuality and charm.
