For fifty years, Gorham has been making the holidays a
little merrier and brighter with the production of their annual silver
snowflake Christmas ornament. Each year, Gorham fans eagerly await the roll out
of the new snowflake to see how it differs from earlier designs.
Like nature’s snowflakes, no two ornaments are alike.
Families collect each new ornament and eventually pass their treasured
collections on to the next generation. For many, it would not be Christmas
without a beautiful Gorham Silver Snowflake hanging from the branches of the
family tree, perfectly reflecting its twinkling lights.

It’s Christmas In July At Silver Superstore!
It’s an exceptionally hot summer, but one way to beat the heat is to look forward to Christmas. The idea of gently falling snow and glistening icicles has never seemed so appealing.
If you collect or make gifts of annually issued Christmas ornaments, it’s never too early to snatch up the new editions. The unique heirlooms start selling out before many collectors finish their Thanksgiving leftovers. Too, you should factor in time for custom engraving and shipping. Engraving makes any keepsake more personal.
We offer an impressive collection of finely crafted ornaments made by the world’s most respected silversmiths. Here are three popular designs, all made right here in the U.S., that are sure to delight year after year.
Wallace Sleigh Bell
2018 Wallace Sleigh Bell
A 16-year-old spoon-maker named Robert Wallace set up shop in the early 1800s. Wallace first issued its whimsical sleigh bell, which is often the top-selling ornament, in 1971.
As always, the three-dimensional motif circles the center of the round bell and frames the year. The 2018 Wallace Sleigh Bell features both holly and Santa Claus. The 2 3/4-inch silver-plated bell has a light, merry ring. The Wallace mark is stamped on the bottom.
We also offer the 24th-edition sterling silver version. The bells look as pretty collected in a bowl as they do dangling from a Christmas tree.
Each ornament comes with both red and white ribbons for hanging, a protective pouch, a gift box and a brochure. Because of their dainty size, we recommend limiting engraved messages to one line.
