Valentine’s day is perhaps the busiest time of year for jewellers and the jewellery industry. The reason, of course is that traditionally nothing says ‘I love you’ in quite the same way as a piece of carefully chosen jewellery. A ring is a symbol of everlasting love and marriage, but no matter what the piece of jewellery you choose, (or even the cost) the sentiment is always there. Giving jewellery is a ‘forever’ gift, something for a loved one to cherish forever, keep safe and wear close. So how do you choose a piece that says ‘I really love you!’ ?
We are host to many talented jewellers, all with varying styles using various materials and tecniques; silver, gold, copper, wire-wrapped, beaded and engraved… and what makes our jeweller’s pieces extra special, is that they are all handmade by designer-makers based in the United Kingdom.
At Folksy you are buying directly from the artist who has created your piece. If you have queries, ask our jewellers for help with sizing or any questions you have about your gift – they made it and they know every detail about it and the materials it is made from. Transactions with our shopkeepers are made securely via paypal and unless they are being created especially for you or your loved one they will be dispatched in 3 working days.
Our jewellers take 95% of the cost of the piece, so buying from Folksy.com is a great way to support talented British artists and steer clear of ubiquitous high street chains.
