For more than a century, brides around the world have prepared their wedding attire according to a famous Victorian dressing rhyme: "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a lucky sixpence in your shoe." The early 20th Century British copper nickel sixpence coins referred to in that traditional rhyme! These "lucky gold-plated wedding coin” necklace make wonderful gifts!
Said to bring "wealth and good fortune" to any wedding. The original coins use to be placed in a bride's left shoe to ensure marital bliss!
The coin necklace displays GREAT BRITAIN 6 PENCE 1964. It depicts LEEK, ROSE, THISTLE, and SHAMROCK, plus her Majesty the QUEEN on the other side. UNDER ELIZABETH I, SIXPENCES WERE BENT AND GIVEN TO LADIES ON THEIR ENGAGEMENT, IF THE GENTLEMAN COULD NOT AFFORD A RING. A very new chic version to the original sixpence.
