Each silver candle holder is made of fine silver which is 99.9% pure and softer than sterling silver.
For each piece a stamp is made with the name and date of birth supplied and the lettering antiqued to allow it to stand out. Darkening may vary depending on the depth of the stamp and may fade over time.
The spike is securely attached to the candle holder by solder.
Please note that these candle holders are not hallmarked as they fall beneath the specific weight threshold as outlined in the Hallmarking Act 1973. However, hallmarking is possible and if you would like your candle holder to be marked at the London Assay Office, this can be arranged for an additional £30 and delivery will take 3-4 weeks in total.
When the candle holder is not being used, it is advised to keep it stored in its box or in an airtight container. If the gift does become tarnished, the shine can be brought back by using a silver cleaning/polishing cloth.
The candle holder will be antiqued to bring out the detail in the lettering so it is not advised to use liquid solutions to clean it as this can remove the colour.
After use on a birthday cake, the candle holder can be washed in mild soapy water but do keep it away from chemicals such as bleach. With correct storage and care this silver candle holder will bring many years of enjoyment as one celebrates their special day.
