Sterling Silver Bookmarks

At some time everybody has used "something" to try to keep their place in a book when your reading gets interrupted:
a bus ticket or train ticket when you reach your stop, a boarding card when the captain announces the plane is about to land, a shopping till receipt when you have finished the relaxing coffee - or basically whatever comes to hand when you need it!

What better then than to combine a memorable gift with a useful gift? distinctlybritish.com have brought together a delightful selection of sterling silver bookmarks in a range of designs and styles, all are hallmarked and come in a gift box or case to make a perfect present for the reader.

There are basically 3 types of bookmark.
Clip style bookmarks - these clip over the top of the page you are reading (or several pages for a firmer fit) and stick out of the top of the book.

There are several variations on the design with tassels, engraving on the "tongue" or frame, .

Clip style bookmarks which have a molded character on the top of the clip which sticks out of the book to add a bit of fun.  These bookmarks include animals, fairies, teddy bear - even an "articulated" rabbit and bricklayer's trowels with mother of pearl or onyx handles!

In addition there is one very traditional bookmark consisting of a sterling silver chain with a small silver book at the bottom and a page clip on the top. Designed to lay in the spine of the book with the silver book prodruding, this is a modern spin on the traditional ribbon bookmarks bound into Bibles and encyclopedias in the past.
