2012 Holiday Gift Guide Vintage Pearl Hand Stamped Jewelry Plus $25 Gift Card Giveaway


    the vintage pearl - custom hand stamped jewelry

     I have been wanting a necklace that represents both my boys.  I have been thinking about it since I was pregnant with Evan.  I had seen the vintage pearl and fell in love with all their beautiful jewelry.  I was more then happy to add them the the Holiday Gift Guide this year.

   The Vintage Pearl makes some of the most beautiful, unique, and meaningful hand stamped jewelry and keepsakes.  All of their pieces are handcrafted from the beginning to end at their studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma with care.  The creations are made with raw sterling silver, freshwater pearls, and birthstone crystals.  Each of the letters are hand stamped individually, they do not use a machine.  Each piece is a true one of a kind.  The Vintage Pearl makes customized jewelry with any names, dates, or words of inspiration that is meaningful to you.  They have several fonts and charm shapes to choose from.  They carry many unique designs and often add new designs.  They even have an option to "design your own" hand stamped necklace by picking your favorite shapes and fonts with their eclectic necklaces and their dainty eclectic necklaces.  In addition to necklaces The Vintage Pearl makes bracelets, key chains, leather cuffs, earrings, dog tags, baby spoons, and more to make the perfect gift.

     I was very excited to pick out a necklace and receive something that I'd been thinking about for a long time now.  It was not an easy choice as they have so many beautiful options.  I finally decided on the double layers of love necklace.  I had Jayden's name and date of birth put on the larger circle and Evan's name and date of birth put on the smaller circle.  On their site they used this necklace to place the names of multiple people, but I love it simply to give each of my boys their own circle.  The necklace is made with thick sterling  silver circle discs and they are hammered around the edges and slightly cupped.  They are handstamped around the edges with tiny lowercase font or calligraphy.  The outer circle is about 1 1/4" and the inner circle is about 1".  A handmade silver heart charm and a freshwater pearl both hand along with the circles.  They are all hung on a sterling silver chain.

     After giving them the information for the necklace I was surprised at how quickly it came.  They were able to customize the necklace and ship it right out.  When I received the package it was wrapped up nicely and the box was beautiful with a ribbon and a pearl charm hanging from it.  when I opened the box I was very happy to find this beautiful necklace inside.  It is just as I pictured it, actually even better.  The names and birth dates are stamped perfectly and the while thing is beautiful.  Can you tell that I love this?  I love having something so special with both my boys represented on it.  And since their names are each on a charm I figure if and that is a big IF we were to have another child then I could possibly just add another circle charm.  This necklace is versatile and can be worn casually or while dressed up.  I expect I will be wearing this daily. 

     The Vintage Pearl has something for everyone.  You can find something special for just about anyone on your holiday list.
