This listing is for one wax seal necklace with a small bee.

The words framing this piece reads:
We May (BEE) Happy Yet

Oh! smile as thou wert wont to smile,
Before the weight of care
Had crushed thy heart, and for awhile
Left only sorrow there; (to quell,
Some thoughts, perchance ‘twere best
Some impulse to forget,
On which, shoutd mem’ry cease to dwell
We may be happy yet.
Oh never name departed days,
Nor vows you whispered then,
Round which too sad a feeling plays,
To trust their tones again,
Regard their shadows,‘round the east,
As if we ne’er had met;
And thus, unmindful of the past,
We may be happy yet.

(written by Alfred Bunn, England, in 1844)

The wax seal used for making this mini charm is from the mid 1800’s England.
The wax seal necklaces are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC by RQP Studio. They are made from a personal collection of antique wax seals that dates from 1730's to 1890's.

This wax seal charm is made of fine silver .999 (which is 99.9% pure silver), and a 18" sterling silver chain is included (sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver). Please note that the patina on the wax seal charm has been through a oxidization process to give it a antique, vintage look. The wax seal has been pressed into the silver by hand, and this gives each and every wax seal charm a unique different look. The wax seal charms are hallmarked on the back with the RQP logo stamp and a silver content stamp (.999) to show that the silver content is 99.9% pure silver.
The wax seal you will receive is similar to the ones in the pictures.

Helpful hints:
* Some of the images (above) of the wax seal necklaces have been photographed close-up. If you have a hard time imagining the size of the charms, then it can be helpful to physically draw the dimensions of the wax seal charm on a piece of paper.
* You can type in the words "mm to in" into Google's search box, that will give you a quick converter if you prefer the dimensions measured in inches.
