Solid silver Valentine's gift heart in recycled silver, Galentine's day gift I love this piece. It's not big, only about 2cm but it feels great in the hand. The surface has a lovely roughness from a process called reticulation, where I bring the surface of the metal to melting point over and over until I'm satisfied with the result. It's part of my series of pocket talismans, made for people who don't wear jewellery or who want a small, private memory they can carry around. My husband carries his around in his wallet. A great gift for for best friend or beloved. The ring comes packaged in a matt white environmentally friendly presentation box, ready to be given and received with love. All my metal is from a company which is a member of the Responsible Jewelry Council. They deal only in recycled silver and gold. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.
