When I was pregnant with Lily, I kept seeing these ads in Parents Magazines that I would read during my bi-weekly doctor’s visits. Yes, I said twice a week doctor visits! Crazy and being high risk I pretty much lived there and this was truly before Kindle and iPad reading. So, I took to the magazines in his office quite well when all else failed.
So, like I said I would see ads for different products in these magazines. One such ad was for hand-stamped jewelry for moms.
One time Kevin came with me and I happened to show him the jewelry that had caught me eye in these ads.
He had decided to buy me one for Christmas that year after I gave birth, because Lily was born in late November and was the perfect gift for the mom of two little girls.
I, now, have had that necklace for two years, but had kind of fallen out of love with the original design I chose (plus not going to lie, but my girls birth stones are not very pretty color combo – should have just gone wight he pearls instead) and for some reason my necklace has tarnished a bit, too from age. The company, he ordered from, is no longer in business to try to see if they could help me with this.
Even still I recently kept looking online at different companies that make similar necklaces and had even thought to possibly get a newer one in the future for myself.
Enter, The Vintage Pearl, who recently became my latest advertiser and offered to send me one of their hand stamped necklaces to review.
I was literally ecstatic to get the chance to get a new necklace, review it and also have them advertise with me.
But before I even picked my necklace out, I got to know a bit more about the company and how it was started up.
From what I learned, the company was indeed started up by Erin, a stay at home mom with 4 young children. She taught herself how to make hand-stamped jewelry all by googling and reading magazines. I was highly impressed with her creativity and ingenuity, too. Plus, I could relate to her doing this to also be able to make money, but stay home to take care of her children, because blogging and designing has allowed me that luxury, as well.
Now to explain how easy the process is to pick and have your own necklace or jewelry handstamped and personalized for you, I will share my own personal experience.
By the way, from start to finish, this company is truly wonderful and professional, too to design a hand-stamped piece of jewelry with.
Here are a few of the necklaces below from the four different categories, that you can choose from:Simple – Dainty Names
I did indeed choose my necklace, which was from the simple category and known as, Electric Charm Necklace.
Once I chose the necklace, I got to decide the chain type/length, the number of charms and the fonts to use and the names for the font.
Once the order was placed with my contact, I waited to receive my order (which was only a few shorts days). When I did, I was so pleased and even more excited to see it in person.
Trust me, if you are looking for the perfect, one of a a kind hand-stamped jewelry for a gift or even for yourself, you cannot go wrong with The Vintage Pearl. Take a look at my gorgeous necklace now, if you don’t believe me (I seriously couldn’t be happier and have worn it constantly still receiving it).
With Mother’s Day, about two months out, this is truly a perfect gift for all mother’s on your list, as well.
