    Anniversary Box

    Our 25th Anniversary (Silver) is coming up next month, I found this Celtic Silver necklace and earrings and put together this box for presentation. It's oak with Bocote insert in the top and mitered splines. Finish is Shellac.

    But... which is the present? The necklace, the box or both?

    Great present and good idea, she can wear the necklace and admire the box at the same time, because I think that wearing the box could cause her some discomfort

    Jokes apart, those are beatilful gifts Dan, she will be really pleased, those will become heirloom pieces, and congratulations for your 25th anniversary
    Best regards,
    Toni
