THE LOVE TOKEN
Featuring an antique love token with your initials or choice of name, set in either 14k solid gold, gold fill or sterling silver.
Love Tokens have been worn and carried for hundreds of years but rose in popularity during the Victorian era in both England and the United States. Often Sailors gave them to their sweethearts as they bid them farewell before setting sail. A true Age of Sail token of love.
Most commonly, dimes and quarters were sanded down smooth on one side, and sentimental phrases, names, pictures or initials were engraved in place of the “head” side of the coin.
These antique tokens are custom-sourced for our clients from the Victorian era. We ask that you are open to 1-3 initials as sometimes it's difficult to source all three of your initials. Please note that it's common for these antique tokens to be punched with more than one hole as well. We always share our finds with you for approval before securing the token from the antique dealers we work with.
Upon checkout, please include both your initials (and what single initial you are open to) in the “Notes” section of the "View Cart" page. We ask that you allow up to 45 days for us to source and set your token, though turnaround times could be much quicker. All custom orders are final sale and not eligible for returns.
PLEASE NOTE - PICTURED FINISHED PIECES ARE FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY - TOKENS DO NOT INCLUDE CHAIN.
