Mementos are available in two standard sizes: 4” or 12” long, however custom lengths are available. The 4” pieces are the ideal size for many individuals, businesses, and organizations who want to have a beautiful and unforgettable memento of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. The impressive 12” pieces show nearly an entire helical turn of the rope’s lay.
Larger mementos are perfect for those who want to present a magnificent gift to family members or business colleagues. Mementos also make excellent items to include in your employee service award program. Whether offered to recognize years of service or presented as retirement gifts, no one will ever forget receiving one of these authentic pieces of Bay Area history.

We use the Bridge’s famous International Orange formula paint supplied by Sherwin Williams. Since 2018, we use their Pro Industrial DTM Acrylic Coating paint, a water-based, UL GreenGuard Gold standard certified, direct-to-metal paint.
Strands of History commits to create thoughtfully designed and skillfully fabricated mementos with a sense of permanence, in keeping with the Golden Gate Bridge’s legacy. Because we want this commitment to be tangible in other meaningful ways, we donate 5% of sales to the SF Exploratorium (located at Pier 15 in San Francisco) to promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for Bay Area students.
