The Storybook Necklace is meant to represent the story of YOUR life. The letters you choose can represent anything that is precious to you. Perhaps a “T” is the initial of a dear friend who you met on a backpacking journey 30 years ago… the same person who remains your best friend to this very day. Maybe an “S” represents the animal companion who was by your side for 14 beautiful years of their perfectly sweet, but never-long-enough life. The “R” could represent a soul mate, or the love of your life. You can read more examples here. Like a storybook, the necklace’s engraved square, circle and rectangle pendants stack together at times and the letters are intentionally not always visible.
Choose the chain material and the two initials you'd like your Storybook to feature. Your necklace will come exactly as you see it in the product photo. For a 2-charm storybook, your necklace will come yellow gold and silver and you have your choice of yellow gold (solid or gold-fill) or sterling silver chain. The only way to have a letter engraved on a specific charm is to enter your desired letters in the order you want them reflected on the necklace, left to right. For example, if you enter 'XO' on a 2-charm necklace, the 'X' will come on the silver square charm in the first position.
Materials: 14k gold and rose gold, 14k gold and rose gold-fill (14k gold over brass core/no nickel) and/or sterling silver (.925). The pendant pieces are all solid 14k and sterling silver. The chain is offered in sterling silver, 14k gold-fill and solid 14k gold. I hope these necklaces will become heirloom pieces that you someday might pass onto someone else. Over time, if you’d like another stamped shape added to your storybook, we can absolutely do that! Our stories are ever-evolving.
We carefully stamp each initial and make every necklace by hand. Because no two necklaces are exactly the same and this design includes heirloom-quality solid metals, this is considered a custom piece. If you want to further customize your necklace, purchase one with more than 5 charms, or add onto an existing storybook, please book a virtual or in-person appointment with Colleen here. With all custom work and special occasion jewelry, all sales are final. Read more here.
This necklace was designed in Asbury Park and is handmade to order in our Upstate New York production studio.
