Here at Hersey we take pride in both the quality of our products and our engraving and delivery service. Our aim is to ensure that every customer has a positive experience when dealing with us so that they will recommend us to their friends and colleagues!
However, if this silver gift fails to meet your expectations, we provide a 100% Guaranteed replacement service, or a refund, if you return it to us within 28-days of dispatch in its original condition/packaging.
You can also request a product of a higher value if you pay the difference, or one of a smaller value in which case we will refund the difference.
All of our products are made from sterling silver, which is 92.5% pure silver with 7.5% other metals added to give strength and malleability to the silver. This is the standard of silver required for hallmarking in the UK.
Each item is made with care by our silversmiths and then polished with hard and soft mops and special compounds to give a lovely finish.
It should be remembered that these are not machine made products and the finish will not be bright like chrome, but a soft, reflective sheen which is how silver should look when new.
From the very first moment that you unwrap your silver gift care should be taken when touching it, especially if it is intended as a gift for someone else. Resist the temptation to touch it with your fingers as even the cleanest hands have acids in the skin that will add tarnish to new silver within a few days. If you must touch it, please wipe very gently with a soft duster or silver polishing cloth before wrapping.
The first tiny scratches on silver always look the worst, in fact they are the beginning of what is called a ‘patina’ which are in fact lots of minute marks, which combined over time, add beauty to the item and should be embraced.

This sterling silver first tooth box, or first curl box, makes a lovely christening gift and has been hallmarked around the edge of the box by the London Assay Office. A fairy sits on the solid silver box lid and she is cast in solid silver as well.
The box is 47mm high from the base of the box to the tip of the fairy wings and makes a great ornament for a nursery or child’s bedroom.
You can have the tooth box engraved with a name, date or special message.
This lovely gift is carefully wrapped for postage and sent to you in a Hersey Silversmiths black presentation box.
