The Rebus Gift Guide: The Talisman Collection

For a gift that speaks a thousand words, you need look no further than our Talisman Collection.

An ideal Christmas present for any lover of jewellery, artistry and symbolism, each Talisman has been skilfully hand crafted by our jewellers. Every one-of-a-kind piece displays an oxidised silver face – no two are ever the quite the same, making every piece as unique as its wearer.

Talisman Signet Rings

The finest craftsmanship meets timeless elegance in our range of signet rings. The Talisman Collection boasts three signet shapes: oval, cushion and triangle. Available in 9 and 18ct gold and a variety of sizes, there is a ring to suit everyone.

Talisman Pendants

A striking addition to any jewellery collection, a hand-engraved pendant catches the eye and is a piece to be treasured forever. Available in 9 and 18ct gold, in a variety of sizes and chain weights, they can easily be personalised to delight your loved one.


The Sacred Heart

An iconic Christian symbol, the bleeding, flaming heart wrapped in a crown of thorns symbolises Christ’s sacrifice, while the fire represents the transformative power of love.

The Hope Anchor

The anchor has symbolised safety and stability since pirates wore it as tattoos, reflecting their everlasting connection to the sea.

The Claddagh

Since the 17th century, this Irish icon has symbolised love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown). Framed by the Latin motto 'memento vivere', this ring reminds the wearer of the pleasure of living.

The Swallow of Hope

Symbolising hope, freedom and eternal life, the swallow traditionally featured in the tattoos of sailors, who believed that swallows would lift their souls to heaven if they drowned.

The Whippet

Ingenious and resourceful, whippets hunt with speed and represent fidelity, watchfulness and nobility.

The Octopus

Highly intelligent, the octopus has the ability to reason and plan ahead to achieve its goal. It is also sensitive, affected by tides and the waxing and waning of the moon.

The Bumble Bee

In Greek mythology, the bee is a symbol of the soul, bridging the natural world and the underworld. Today, we see it as a mysterious, industrious, yet lovable creature.

The Homeward Bound

First worn as tattoos by British sailors around 1700, the ship symbolises the journey of life, with the determination to weather all its crests and storms.

The Owl and Key

Owls have been associated with wisdom, mystery and protection since ancient times. Sacred to the Greek goddess Athena, the owl is a symbol of intelligence and strength.
