As moms, it is easy to say that our number one priority is our children. We get up in the morning ready to put in hour after hour of taking care of them (whether by staying at home or by working to support them) and we go to bed at night exhausted after having spent every waking moment with them on our minds.
It's quite the tiring job, really (and I'm pretty sure my bosses aren't nearly appreciative enough).
However, there is nothing in the world that makes a mom as proud as her family and the amount of love that goes into taking care of those children can easily be described as endless. Therefore, what better way to display that than with a beautiful piece of hand stamped jewelry to fully symbolize that devotion?
And that's exactly what you'll find (and more!) in the custom-made, meaningful jewelry and keepsakes found at JC Jewelry Design.
Browsing through JC Jewelry Design, it is hard to not be in awe of the large selection and variety of pieces available. From Mommy Necklaces to personalized bracelets to unique gifts for men, there is a handcrafted, personalized item for everyone to love and enjoy.
The amount of time that goes into making each piece of jewelry special is evident and the finished look is whatever you choose - from classic and simple to elaborate and complex. You can't go wrong!
Knowing how much I love the personalized jewelry that I own and how much it means, I had no doubt that a good friend (who is an amazingly devoted mother) would be thrilled with the chance to wear a hand stamped necklace from JC Jewelry Design. When she mentioned that she thought the Circle of Love sterling silver necklace was beautiful, I couldn't help but agree.
A perfect gift idea for just about anyone on your list for Mother's Day and beyond, the Circle of Love necklace consists of a 1" sterling silver round washer hand stamped with the names, dates, initials, or words of your choice. With room for up to 26 characters, you can easily fit children's names, a short quote, a wedding anniversary, or much more so that the lucky recipient will love the finished look.
When the package arrived from JC Jewelry Design (extremely quickly, by the way), I was immediately impressed with the cute presentation as a whole. The box itself was simple and sweet and the bow made it ready for immediate gift-giving.
Inside, the necklace was safely stored in a soft pouch and came with a jewelry polishing cloth to keep it looking beautiful for years to come. As for the piece itself? Simply stunning!
JC Jewelry Design brushes and polishes their pendants to give them a natural and organic look and the shine of the silver only complements the individual hand stamped letters of the names.
I love the way that this necklace manages to combine a light, delicate look and feel to it while easily being strong and secure enough that the ball chain won't break or come unhooked if pulled on. The quality is definitely great and helps to make this a piece I know this loving mom will be able to wear for quite some time.
Whether you are purchasing for yourself this Mother's Day, are buying a special birthday or new baby gift for someone else, or just love hand stamped jewelry as much as I do, JC Jewelry Design has a necklace, bracelet, or gift that will match your recipient's taste as well as your budget. The Circle of Love necklace retails for $39, an affordable price for something that turned out so well and will be able to be treasured for a lifetime.
Thanks to the generosity of JC Jewelry Design, one person will also be able to customize their own soon-to-be-favorite piece of jewelry as well, because...
