History

Thanks to their homing abilities, pigeons have acted as a postal service through history, from Julius Caesar to Genghis Khan to David Lloyd George. This pendant is cast from a pigeon band, found in Nottingham, and used during WW1 to attach correspondence letters to. We like the idea that this pendant could accompany someone off traveling, much like a St. Christopher, guiding the wearer through their journey and safely home.

Handmade in England, this pendant bears Lylie’s signature Salvaged Hallmark, indicating it is made from 100% recycled precious metal. The model wears the Curb Chain. Please note, we do not dip the chains, they are all Sterling Silver or Solid 9ct gold. They are not 100% recycled at this time.
