How are the pieces made?

All items are created using a vintage element which results in a completely unique piece of jewellery. There is also a selection of pieces made entirely from scratch by Janie and these are identified in the item description. Silver or gold plated jewellery wire is used to ensure sound attachments and on occasions jewellers adhesive.  All wiring is neatly finished and no loose ends are left.


How long will delivery take?

Pieces are packaged and posted as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours (weekends and bank holidays excluded). Items are sent Recorded Delivery via Royal Mail which will need a signature upon receipt. We will send you an email to confirm postage when the item is passed to Royal Mail. If you have a specific request concerning postage please enter details when you pay for the item. Alternatively you can send us an email or call us.


How much will I pay for delivery?

We do not apply any postage cost on orders to the UK mainland. All UK postage and packaging is free of charge. If you need postage to a location other than mainland UK please contact us to discuss your requirements.


How long will I need for a bespoke piece to be made?

We recommend at least 6 weeks so that we can source vintage pieces to match your style and design. Obviously the more time we have the more chance we have of getting the piece perfectly right for you. We source from a variety of locations from local fares through to global suppliers. Pieces using non-vintage items may require less time.


Can my own jewellery be used to create an original piece?


Yes. As all of the jewellery pieces created by Lucky Sixpence contain a vintage element it is very possible for your existing piece of jewellery to be incorporated into making a new piece. If you have a specific jewellery item that you would like to be incorporated into something new and wearable please contact us to discuss your thoughts and feasibility. Please refer to the Bespoke page for more detail.



How do I care for my piece of jewellery?


As most items are fragile it is important to ensure your item is cared for and stored properly. Before storing make sure the item is clean and free of dust. Do not store along with other pieces as items can rub against each other causing scratches or even loosening of stones. Ensure they are stored away from direct sunlight and away from large changes in temperature. And at the risk of stating the obvious keep them dry and away from sources of moisture. It is recommended to store jewellery in individual boxes and wrapped in lint-free cloths or acid-free paper. The bag and box that the band or comb will be delivered in are ideal.



What do you mean by vintage?


We have used items from as recently as the 1980s but also items from around the turn of the 20th century. Rather than a piece’s age, it is the design and the quality that we look for in choosing whether to use a piece in our designs.
