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
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.
Christmas Comes Early with Silver Superstore!
The calendar has flipped over to June, and here at Silver Superstore that can only mean one thing: our 2017 silver Christmas ornaments have started rolling in! And as much as we love a good backyard barbecue, it’s never too early to plan ahead and get your hands on your annual favorites.
This gorgeous creation is a six-sided piece of .925 sterling silver adorned with a red ribbon. This festive item is guaranteed made in the USA and is stamped Gorham Sterling on the edge. It’s the 48th in a long line of terrific ornaments crafted with Old World charm and dedication to quality. The snowflake is 3.5 inches tall and 3.25 inches wide. It glimmers in the light from the sheen of its reflective surface. The concentric hexagon pattern repeats on both sides, so it will look marvelous from any angle.
You can also adorn the Gorham Snowflake with an Engraving Tag and add a special message. Both sides can be engraved ($6.00 extra for the second side). There are 15 fonts from which you can choose. It also comes with both a protective pouch and an attractive gift box. As with real snowflakes, no two Gorham versions are the same from year to year.
