The antique wax seal used in creating this charm is from 1810’s France,
the last years of Napoleon Bonaparte as a ruler of France.
The wax seal necklaces are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC by RQP Studio.
This charm is made of fine silver .999 (which is 99.9% pure silver), and an 18" sterling silver chain is included (sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver). Please note that the patina on the wax seal charm has been through a oxidization process to give it a antique, vintage look. The antique wax seal has been pressed into the silver by hand, and this makes each and every wax seal charm unique. They are hallmarked on the back with the RQP logo stamp and a silver content stamp (.999) to show that the silver content is 99.9% pure silver.
The wax seal you will receive is similar to the ones in the pictures.

*You can type in the words "mm to in" into Google's search box, that will give you a quick converter if you prefer the dimensions measured in inches.
