Love Token with Custom Engraving
A modern love token, with hand engraved sentiments to honor your story. Perhaps it's your monogram, the word "sister" or "mama," or another role dear to your heart, or perhaps its the name of someone close. No matter what you choose to engrave, this token is a one-of-a-kind work of art, made just for you.
Choose one or both sides for engraving; engraving both sides allow for a reversible pendant.
Love Tokens as Sentimental Jewelry
Why a love token?
Dating back centuries, love tokens were literal tokens - out-of-circulation coins - that were sanded down on one or both sides to leave a blank space for a word, image or other sentimental motif to be hand engraved. Love tokens gained a lot of popularity in times of war, when men and women would keep their tokens close at hand as distance came between them. In the Victorian period, love tokens also became a part of mourning practices.
Having a tangible reminder of your love story to wear and hold can be incredibly powerful, even in the modern age.
Made for You on Jeweler's Row in Philly
Handmade takes time, but it's worth it. This beauty needs many artists' hands to bring it to life, including the engraver, Lisa. Given this, allow 3-4 weeks for the creation of your piece.
This pendant measures just slightly over 3/4" and hangs just slightly over 1" from the chain. Each piece comes with a complimentary 16" or 18" sterling silver curb chain. An intricate 24" chain is also available, as seen in the photo on the model - message for more information. Each love token is crafted from recycled sterling silver.
Pictures in this listing include the love token with forget-me-not flowers, as another example of engraving work. Your order, however, will not include the flowers. I also encourage you to check out the listings for our signet rings, as they offer up other examples of engravings.
Once you place the order, please message me to discuss the engraving you would like for the front and back (if applicable). Please also let me know your choice of chain.
We cannot wait to bring your vision for your special love token to life!
