This beautiful necklace represents the Thomas McCunn – the older lifeboat which, during its service, saved over 300 lives at sea. This boat is now proudly displayed inside the Longhope Lifeboat Museum in Orkney. The lifeboat pendant can move freely on the chain with a wonderful tactile fluidity, just like it was at sea.
In October 2018 a fundraising appeal was launched to restore and maintain the Longhope Lifeboat Museum in Orkney. With the Longhope Lifeboat committee’s approval, Zoe presents this ‘Limited Edition’ collection to help raise funds for the Longhope Lifeboat Museum. This special collection will only be available to purchase for the 50th anniversairy of the Longhope Lifeboat disaster on March 17th, 2019.
Why not have a peek at our Large McCunn Drop Earrings? They would make a perfect pair!
This highly polished lifeboat measures approximately 20mm long, 10mm high and 8mm wide. Made completely from sterling silver, this lifeboat hangs from a stunning silver chain, which can come in two different lengths: 16 inches or 18 inches.
