Components discovered in Cottonwood AZ



After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it is preserved and/or sealed to ensure its longevity and protection. Each and every item is made by hand by owners Nathan and Ali, therefore, some small imperfections or variations may be present in your design. To us, this only adds to the beauty and rarity of your particular piece. 1888 Design does not claim ownership over the design or production of any vintage, antique, or otherwise repurposed object used in the creation of our jewelry. 

Each 1888 Design piece contains unique elements of symbolic or historic value that mean something different to us all. Let's break down what the elements in this design are

1927 Portuguese Coin

1927 Portugal was beginning a new chapter. The first Portuguese Rebuplic has concluded one full year and paved the way for the Ditadura Nacional. This was a temporary period characterized by a provisional military government that was attempting to bring back stability to Portugal.

Coins

 An undeniable symbol of one’s own worth. One of the most valued tangible (nowadays more or less conceptual) items amongst mankind, is money. And why it is so valuable is not because of the item or numerical digit inside our bank account itself- but the countless possibilities it can represent for one’s life. When we relate to the positive associations of the coin, we remember that we hold the necessary tools inside ourselves to build the life of our dreams, to sustain our own lives and those we look after, to treat ourselves kindly, and to even uplift the sense of worth in others with the unspoken words “you deserve this” as we pass these tools along to one another. 

Since the very beginning of coins’ existence, they have also served as an amazing visual display of a territory’s history, accomplishments, and culture, making them a potent symbol of pride and remembrance of where we came from and what makes us, us.

FAQ

Can I resize this item?

If a product page does not have a drop down option for size selections, or if the product description does not state a need for the customer to input their desired size in the notes section of their purchase, then we are NOT able to resize the item. Some exceptions can be made with chain lengths. Please reach out to us at inspire@1888design.com and we will try to accommodate as best we can.

Are your earrings hypoallergenic?

All earring posts are made out of sterling silver, stainless steel, or brass metals unless otherwise stated in the product description. Sterling silver and stainless steel are both hypoallergenic metals. Brass can react differently among different skin types, so we advise knowing your body's tolerance to brass prior to purchasing earrings with brass ear posts. Again, all metals used are stated in each product's description tab.
