Whole Family Birthstone Necklace

Regular price $499.00
/

Only 24 items in stock!

Designed in collaboration with Hannah Williams, this birthstone necklace was designed specifically so help celebrate your whole family, those with you and those who aren't anymore. Personally, I lost three children to miscarriage and have been looking for a way to remember them while showcasing my whole family in one piece. 

 

Design

It was specifically designed to look like a mama holding her family while the lost children watch from above. Opals were chosen because they are both stunningly beautiful and showcase several colors. They show the possibilities our children could have become. A beautiful mystery.

This necklace can be customized to your family by choosing up to 7 stones for the 'family' portion on the bottom, and up to 5 stones for the 'children lost' portion on the top.


This piece is made with a core of Sterling Silver (.925) electroformed with Fine Silver (.999).

 

Birthstones

Please Note:

During the checkout process, please let me know what birthstones you will be needing on the bottom portion and how many stones to add to the top. Unless otherwise specified, I will be setting the stones in the order you give from Left to Right on the necklace.

Let's Take Care of Your Jewelry!

You just bought one of our beautiful pieces and now you want to know how to make it last as long as possible.  We've got you covered!

Electroformed and Plated Jewelry

Almost all of our Electroformed jewelry, both Copper and Fine Silver, is plated 2-4 microns thick which is more than double the industry standard of 0.5 microns.  Even that will eventually begin to wear through.  While you can wear it all the time, we do recommend removing the jewelry when showering or sleeping for maximum longevity. We usually recommend having a piece plated every 6-12 months or as needed based on wear. When that time comes, you can message us about replating or take it to a local jeweler. 
Do not use a polishing cloth or polishing solution if your ring is gold plated! It will remove the gold plating. If your ring is Bare Fine Silver, you can use a either a polishing cloth or polishing solution safely on your ring. 

Cast Jewelry (Solid 14k Gold or Sterling Silver)

Our custom Cast jewelry is heirloom quality and made with the best materials available.  When ordering a bare silver or solid gold piece, we include a Sunshine Polishing Cloth with each custom order and recommend cleaning with warm water and soap, allow it to dry, then polish with the Sunshine Cloth.  You can also take it to your local jeweler for cleaning if you don't want to do it yourself!  

FAQ

Q: I’ve ordered a Made-To-Order piece, will it look EXACTLY like the photo in the listing?

A: No, the photos in Made-To-Order listings show examples of how it may look.  We work with Raw Gemstones and no two stones are exactly alike.  If you really like a specific photo, let us know when you check out and we can work with you to find the closest stone we have in our collection.

Q: I’ve had one of your plated pieces for awhile now and I love it!  But the plating is starting to wear off, can you re-plate it?

A: Yes, we can re-plate it for you! Just message us and we can work through that process with you. Another option is to check with your local jeweler.  Just let them know it is a copper or silver electroformed piece that has been plated.

Q:  I really like your current designs, but I want to change it just a little bit.  Can I do that without going through a full custom build?

A: If you just want a simple change like a different stone or a custom size, we would be happy to accommodate you!  Just contact us before you order so we can talk through it.

Q: I want something really special since I'll be proposing soon. Do you make custom engagement rings or bridal jewelry?

A: YES! We absolutely love making engagement rings. Check out our custom design process here. 

Q: I found one of your older designs online.  Can you still make it?

A: Yes, we can still make many of my old designs.  Just contact us and we’ll chat!

 

Q: What if it doesn't fit?

A: Be sure you measured correctly before ordering! I DO NOT resize any of my Opal rings because the likelihood of destroying the Opal is too high. We can re-size other electroformed pieces but they must be taken apart and rebuilt from the ground up.  I can resize most cast pieces so if you have any questions please message me and ask!

For more information on sizing accurately- go HERE.

Because electroforming isn't an exact science, I consider a 1/4 size variance as an acceptable range. If your ring is more than 1/4 size off the size you ordered, I will re-set/resize it for free. 

If it is within 1/4 size of the size ordered, but you ordered the wrong size, it will have to be entirely remade and will cost 50% of the original retail price (excluding all discounts). 

Q: Can my Electroformed ring be soldered together:

A: You cannot solder electroformed pieces for resizing or fusing together. Almost all of my electroformed pieces are plated and soldering would destroy the plating.

Q:What are your office hours?

A: Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm PST. If you are living outside the US, want to book a custom consultation, and cannot fit within these time perimeters please contact us for special accommodation.

Q: Can I have a personalized note added if I'm shipping to someone for a gift?

A: Yes, we would love to include a handwritten a note for you! Just let us know in at checkout what you want to say.
