Something About Silver Hand Stamped Jewelry {Review & Giveaway}

Something About Silver logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Lina!}

Before I had my own children, I already knew without question that my mom loved me.

However, it took having kids of my own to realize just how much.

I look at my girls and know that I would do anything and everything necessary to protect them or help them or simply provide for them and their well-being. I want to hold them tight when they need to be comforted and cheer the loudest when they are being honored. I want to relish in this time of them being small yet also look forward to when they are grown and I can see what they have become.

So then I look at my mom and know that she wants all of that for me. Is there a way to thank someone for all of the years that they have put in caring for you and losing sleep over you and being there for you in person or only a phone call away?

Probably not. But I aim to start off letting my mom know that she means the world to me with a tangible token of my thanks in the form of something beautiful from Something About Silver.

Something About SilverSpecializing in custom hand stamped jewelry, Something About Silver offers a wide selection of keepsake necklaces as well as bracelets, rings and bridal jewelry that are certain to be cherished gifts. As all of their pieces are fabricated by hand in their Florida studio, they not only can create everything you see on their website, but are also more than willing to create a custom piece that is personalized just for you.

Deciding that I would put that to the test, I sent a long email to Something About Silver detailing exactly how I wanted a necklace to look that would be a perfect fit for my mom. Being the extremely particular person that I am, my creation combined parts of the adorable Love Tokens Necklace...

hand stamped jewelry...with specific charm separates that were domed and had the names of her four grandchildren written just so.

hand stamped charmsEssentially I sent it all over and crossed my fingers. To be honest, I also expected to receive a response saying that I was somewhat off my rocker.

Instead, I heard from Something About Silver when they wanted to nicely point out that the Love Tokens Necklace tends to look best with an odd number of charms and would I like to add a fifth to balance it out? Extremely appreciative that they thought to ask, I chose the word Love as the final word and couldn't wait to see the look.

When my custom necklace arrived, right away I was in love with the classic, clean gift box...

Something About Silver review...and, when I pulled it out, I couldn't have been happier that Something About Silver had taken every last one of my specifications and put them together, right down to the last letter.

hand stamped necklaceI was so thrilled with the way that this custom necklace turned out that I found myself a little jealous that it wasn't a gift for me. Each of the five discs are smooth to the touch and the names are stamped perfectly, making the overall look simple yet elegant at the same time.

Although many people like when necklace pendants or charms hang together in the middle, I knew that my mom would prefer each one to have its own location, similar to a charm bracelet. Wanting to get the full effect, I couldn't help but try it on for myself.

hand stamped necklaceWhile the craftsmanship and quality of this necklace is superb, it goes without saying that I especially love that Something About Silver goes above and beyond to specialize in taking custom orders and that they never batted an eye at my list of requests. If you can dream up a keepsake or piece of jewelry, they are the place to contact to have it turned into reality!

Whether you are purchasing an item for yourself, are buying a special birthday, holiday or new baby gift for someone else, or just love hand stamped jewelry as much as I do, Something About Silver has a necklace, bracelet, ring or gift that will match your recipient's taste as well as your budget. The Love Tokens Necklaces starts at only $26 for one charm ($58 gifts for menfor five, as I chose), an affordable price for something that turned out so well and will be able to be treasured for a lifetime.

There is something for everyone at Something About Silver (gifts for men, too!) and, of course, the option of designing something distinctively your own as well.
