sterling silver jewellery ⋆ hand stamped vintage cutlery.

Love, Pieces of Eight has been around now since 2014 & my philosophy is simple... I like to keep all of my designs affordable whilst still maintaining good quality and style. My designs are minimalist, dainty & simple. Perfect everyday jewellery which is designed and hand made by me in my little home workshop in Warwickshire.

My hand stamped cutlery is another really popular seller - I use all vintage cutlery from all over the world and am always on the hunt for beautiful new treasures to stamp. I love pottering round car boots, antique shops, flea markets & anywhere else that has unwanted & unloved pieces ready to start their new shiny destiny.

I have also been lucky enough to be featured several times in the top UK Wedding Magazines & online blogs {Perfect Wedding Magazine, Wedding Ideas & Brides} with my colourful Party Animal Drink Stirrers!

When you buy from me, you are supporting a small business and I am truly grateful for each and every order. All items are hand crafted and hand stamped with both love & care - using traditional, self taught techniques to produce a lovely long lasting item you can give to someone special as a gift or a treat for yourself. ​​

I love doing custom & bespoke orders, so if there is something special you are looking for or would like to see, please do email me at hello [!at] lovepiecesofeight.com or send me a message on here.

Additional policies and FAQs

PERSONALISED PIECES
Please ensure you check the text required and that spellings are all correct as the text given on the order, will be the exact text stamped on to your item.

HAND STAMPING
Please note that all of my personalised pieces are hand stamped by me (with a hammer and metal stamp). Because each letter is individually hand stamped, and not machine engraved, there may be a slight impression on the opposite side of the disc from the force of the stamping. I do try my very best to make sure that each letter is centred and neatly stamped, however, they may not be perfectly straight. This is the charm of hand stamping and makes them each one of a kind and unique.

Frequently asked questions

How long will my order take?

HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?
My production time for personalised/custom made jewellery is usually 3-5 business days, before shipping, however please check my home page for the current turn around time, as it may be longer during busy periods.

Depending on current order volumes, I will ship your item out as soon as I can to you - I don't like to rush orders, I want to take care and provide good quality items that my recipients will be happy to receive and excited to show off.​

Are jewellery items Hallmarked?

I only work with silver classified as "Sterling Silver". This is an alloy of silver made up of 92.5% of silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper.

In accordance with the Hallmarking Act 1973, I hallmark all of my silver items weighing over 7.78g in compliance with current UK law & legislation. If the silver content of a piece of jewellery is less that 7.78g in weight - it will instead, where appropriate be marked with .925 to show that it is "Sterling Silver", which also helps keeps the cost down for you.​

Should you wish to have your item that is below the 7.78g threshold hallmarked with the full hallmarks, this can be done upon request for an additional fee. Please note that hallmarking may add to manufacturing timescales.

What is Hand Stamping?

All of my personalised pieces are hand stamped by me (with a hammer and metal stamp). Because each letter is individually hand stamped, and not machine engraved, there may be a slight impression on the opposite side of the disc from the force of the stamping.

I do try my very best to make sure that each letter is centred and neatly stamped with an even depth, however they may not be perfectly straight, aligned or of equal depth. This is not considered a defect and instead adds to the hand stamped charm & makes them each one of a kind and unique.

Do you do custom or bespoke order requests?

Absolutely. These are some of my favourite orders to receive and make. I'd love to work with you on making your own very special commissioned piece. Please do get in touch, I would love to hear your ideas.

Do you offer a Gift Wrapping Service?

I don't currently offer a Gift Wrapping service, however all items will arrive thoughtfully packaged in a beautiful branded foil embossed gift box or branded earring cards (for small studs), ready for gift giving. More details are available on each individual listing.

Do you offer wholesale / bulk discounts?

Yes, I will consider all wholesale orders. Bridal & Corporate Events discount / discount for large orders is available, so please do contact me for further information.
