Medal Mounting Services 

 

 

 At C & J Medals we pride ourselves on providing a personal service to all our customers.

With over 40 years of experience in mounting medals you have our own personal assurance that we will treat your medals with the greatest of care.

Your medals can be mounted either Court Style or Swing Style ready to wear.

Whichever way you choose to have your medals mounted they will be returned to you in a free handmade protective cloth pouch, your medals will be cleaned with non-abrasive cleaners and supplied with new ribbons.

 All our medals are hand sewn by our Master Tailor in the traditional military manner, we never use glue on our mounted medals.

 

 Court Style Medal Mounting  

Court Mounted Medals are sewn on a backing of buckram.

The medals ribbons run behind the medals which are then

sewn to the backing. Medal ribbons are placed side by side

up to and including 6 medals. Thereafter ribbons/medals

should be overlapped with the senior ribbons nearest the

centre of the chest being fully exposed.

A medal brooch with a safety catch is sewn onto the back of

the buckram.

 

 

Swing Mounted Medals

Swing Mounted Medals are sewn onto a medal brooch with a safety catch.

With the medals hanging loosely from the ribbon, this allows the medals to ‘swing’ freely.

This style of mounting is sometimes called ‘ordinary’ mounting

 
 

 

Gilding and Plating

 At C & J Medals we are pleased to offer you the magnificent service of gilding and plating your medals.

You will never have to clean your medals again.

The process of nickel gilding and chrome plating by our jeweller enables your medals to stay shiny forever.
Gilding and plating eliminates cleaning and avoids wear on the medal and damage to the ribbons.
