Unique to 10STERLING & handmade by us.
This highly-polished, solid sterling silver dog tag disc, modelled on the 35mm UK Armed Forces' dog tag, makes a great gift for a baby boy. It has room for 5 lines of engraved* lettering with 12 characters per line on the first 3 lines then 10 and 8 characters on the last 2 lines (note, all letters are CAPITALISED & each line is CENTRED). This means there's enough room for his full name, date-of-birth, place-of-birth, etc, plus one more line. Handmade in our Windsor workshop. This product is unique to 10STERLING. The tag is hallmarked in London and we asked the London Assay Office to add the lion hallmark (traditional 925 purity mark) at the base of the tag which seems appropriate given that the design is based on the discs worn by the UK Armed Forces. 10STERLING name is stamped on the back of each tag in small (1.5mm) letters. Included in this gift set is a 20", 3.2mm thick, hallmarked, sterling silver ball chain.
The real beauty of this gift is that the owner can use and enjoy it throughout their adult life, not just for one day when they're a baby. So many beautiful baby gifts end up being "never-to-be-handled" mementos because they're not suitable for day-to-day use or they're too valuable to risk getting lost or damaged. This gift makes a great shiny present on the day but when safely put away after the day, it's still waiting for its real purpose to begin. When the baby becomes a young man, all he needs do is swap the ribbon for the included silver chain to turn it into a cool silver dog tag pendant: a permanent reminder of your love and affection. See product care for silver cleaning instructions.
The baby boy's silver dog tag and chain comes with a specially impregnated silver polishing cloth so it can stay looking shiny bright. The tag is 35mm in diameter and 1.0mm thick. The weight of silver in the disc is 9.0g and the 20" chain weighs 10.0g. For comparison, a single UK £1 coin weighs 9.5g. Delivered in a smart black & silver gift box.
