How to Polish Brass Jewelry

Posted on October 26, 2015 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

We are in love with our swing-top brass bracelets. They are totally customizable and the perfect inexpensive, thoughtful gift. But how do you take care of brass jewelry? Let us tell you!

When polished, brass is very similar in color to gold. However, brass does tarnish very easily, and can leave a faint tint on some people due to the oils in their skin.

To keep your brass looking bright, avoid getting brass jewelry wet. Brass can be cleaned or polished with regular toothpaste and then rinsed and dried.

What does your jewelry gift packaging look like?

At Charmed, we believe that every single purchase from our shop is a gift--either for yourself or a lucky loved one. 

Every package comes gift wrapped. It's just how we roll. Every package will include a card with care instructions an clear storage pouch to slow tarnishing when you're not wearing your piece, and our favorite polishing pads. 

*Cuff bracelets (aren't they gorgeous?!) will come to you in a clear package, not a box.

Here's what you can expect when your package arrives:

Receipts will always be emailed to you instead of included in the package. 

What are my font and image options?

Posted on September 27, 2015 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

Above are the fonts and images we currently offer.

In this sample photo, they are stamped on 7/8" round charms (about the size of a quarter). Those little people are stamped on 1" charms. 

Of course not every font can fit on the piece you are creating. However, you are welcome to change the font on just about any of the designs.

Here is how you request a font switcharoo:

  1. Fall in love with one of the above fonts.
  2. Select a gorgeous piece of jewelry in the shop and add it to the shopping cart. 
  3. Tell us your font request in the Special Instructions section in the shopping cart.


Which fonts can be stamped on the Stackable Rings?

The above images will fit on any of our Stackable Rings. 

Dove of Peace | A Grieving Granddaughter's Story

Posted on March 10, 2014 by Kim Orlandini | 0 Comments

I just have to share with you because I am so excited about this necklace. I think it will be the most meaningful gift I have given someone.

 

My grandfather passed away in May from cancer. When he was in the hospital, there was a moment when my mother was the only person in the room with him. He told her to look at a dove on the windowsill. She thought his morphine had kicked in and he was seeing things, but turned to look and saw a dove on the windowsill. It gave her such a sense of peace, she told everyone in our family about it.

When I saw this necklace after you posted it on Facebook, I knew it would be perfect for her. 

I would also like to add, he was in that room for 4 days. There was a tree right outside his window. I watched out there every time I was at the hospital and never saw a single bird out that window, not even in the tree. We truly believe that dove was sent to give them peace.

Monarch Butterfly | A Grieving Daughter's Story

Posted on February 28, 2014 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

Thanks so much for making the butterfly charms

Butterflies have meant a lot to my siblings and me since my dad passed. Monarch butterflies especially have had a very special meaning to us as my dad loved them.

One followed our car as we entered the cemetery and literally followed us to his grave site...we watched it through the sunroof. 

These pieces for my siblings and me are such a special reminder of our dad.

Jewelry to Help Bring Peace | A Birthmother's Story

Posted on February 28, 2014 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

I placed in an open adoption 5.5 years ago.

I then got married and had two kids of my own. I started to feel like I was losing my closeness to my birthdaughter. 

I purchased two different custom necklaces (now all on the same chain) they were beautiful and better than expected. Now everyday when I wear it, I see my reminder of my birthdaughter and carry her name close to my heart.

The necklace brought me peace.

Love you guys!

A Charming Bouquet | A Bride's Story

Posted on January 22, 2014 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

Emily was such a beautiful bride!

And a creative one too. She picked out one of our Wax Seal Monogram Charms to add to her bouquet. While fresh flowers make difficult keepsakes, Sterling silver lasts forever.

It was her florist's idea. (Thank you, Rene's Fab Lab!) And her photographer, James McGhee captured it beautifully. 

Emily, we wish you much joy (and jewelry!) as you enjoy your happily ever after!
