Today we continue with another giftable product review. We are looking at the Sterling Stackable Ring and Birth Stone Ring Set from Southern Stamped Jewelry Company. Southern Stamped Jewelry did send me items for free to review. The Stackable Ring and Birthstone Set was what they let me choose, so that is what I will be reviewing. They did however send along another surprise item that I will be sharing with you, but not reviewing it.
First let me start by telling you a little bit about Southern Stamped Jewelry and what they offer. They are a small business run by a husband and wife team. Something that grew from a hobby and a passion for helping people through the grieving process. Now their selection has broadened to many categories as well as custom-made pieces.
Southern Stamped Jewelry Company offers both women’s and men’s pieces. There is something that will fit in everyone’s gift budget. All of their products are made to be personalized, either by stamping or adding birthstones and many pieces are both. They also do custom pieces, so if you don’t see exactly what you want they can make it for you.
My package arrived in a small poly mailer. Inside it was nicely wrapped in bubble wrap and tissue paper. Also in the package, they included two of these anti-tarnish silver polishing clothes, one for each item they sent.
I am not sure what they send if your item is a different metal. They do seem to have a variety of metal options.
After I got the tissue paper completely unwrapped, I found both items in cute little drawstring bags.
I personally prefer boxes or the little silk bags, just because it adds to the element of surprise when getting an item. That is just a personal preference and doesn’t really affect the actual items, nor would it prevent me from shopping with them. But I thought it was a nice touch that their company logo was printed on the bag. I think it adds to the idea of I picked out something nice for you from a jewelry company, rather than if the bags had been plain.
So I opened up the rings first to look them over since they were what I picked out.
I was initially attracted to this set because it is a ring set, and most of you probably know by now that I do love rings. I also liked the simple design, which tends to be more of my taste. I really like that they can be worn together or separate, and they could easily be stacked with other rings.
When I told the owners what items I liked, I included a few additional pieces of info. I just let them know my ring size, that both mine and my husbands birthdays were in November, and that I would want my husband’s name on the one ring. Now you could have your own name inscribed. I thought that if you got two it would make an adorable choice for “Best Friends” jewelry. You could also have MOM inscribed on it. The possibilities are endless.
The rings fit fantastic. They are available in 4 to 10, but not half sizes. I asked for an 8. I technically wear a 7.5, but I have found that my hands swell a lot because of medications I am on, so I wanted to size up. So it worked out okay for me that they didn’t have half sizes, but if it is something that is absolutely necessary for you its something to keep in mind. But I think my fellow plus size gals will be happy to see they offer up to size 10, as they are not always available past size 8 with some stores. So definite bonus points for that.
Obviously this would be more of a gift for a mother in law, or possibly mother of the groom as a wedding party gift. If you have a larger budget for gifts you can even take items like this and tie them in with the bow as part of the wrapping.
Just like last year, around this time, I will be reviewing a lot of services and products up until December that you might want to consider for gift giving. Yes, it is that time of year again where some of us have already started our Christmas shopping.
When you receive your package, this is what you will see:
It arrived in this nice velvet bag. I personally like when jewelry I order comes like this in case I want to keep it separated from my other jewelry. Or if I want to give it as a gift it gives it a little extra special feeling.
When you get into the velvet bag, you can see the necklace also comes wrapped in plastic as well. Though honestly if I were giving this as a gift I do think that I would take the necklace out of the plastic and just put it back into the velvet bag.
In the second bag you see in the front, the bag also contained this package. The white label on the bag simply said free gift. Of course it is a matching pair of earrings.
The chain size varies from 18.5 inches long to 30.5 inches long. It has a nice weight to it. The product page says that the chain color is rose gold, but it most definitely not rose gold. It is yellow gold.
The earrings are on a French hook, and they are in the same yellow gold and matching color of beads. The product page doesn’t really say anything about a free gift, so I don’t know if they always send these, or if this is a random things that happens.
I really am happy with my purchase, and I would highly recommend it for anyone that loves jewelry. Especially those that love layered necklaces. If you want to get one for yourself, you can find it here.
I did receive this item at a discounted price for review purposes. However all thoughts are my own and always honest.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rachel Roth Jewelry. All opinions are 100% mine.
Speaking as someone whose love language is gift giving, finding that perfect gift that really speaks to the person that I am shopping for is always important to me. One way to achieve this is by giving a custom made gift, and that is why today I wanted to share with you something really special. I wanted to talk to you about Rachel Roth Jewelry.
So what make Rachel Roth Jewelry so special? Not only is it custom made pieces of jewelry, but its a way to give a little bit of yourself in a way. Her jewelry pieces incorporate fingerprints and handwriting from you or your loved one. This makes it so special and very personal. I can see these jewelry pieces being a great gift for anyone in your life.
I am so in love with this Custom Handwriting Necklace. I imagine any woman would love to receive this from her significant other. I could even see this being a lovely gift for a daughter’s sweet sixteen. There are really so many possibilities, and you are not limited to just using your name. The only limitation is 30 characters and wherever your imagination stops you. Make sure to check out the matching Custom Handwriting Earrings and the Custom Handwriting Bracelet. All of the custom handwriting jewelry is available in both silver or gold.
And finally I wanted to share with you this Custom Fingerprints Heart Necklace. I imagine this to be the perfect gift for a mother or grandmother. I know how touched my mother would be to receive one of these, or really any of my friends with young children would be especially happy to get them. I think even some dad’s out there would love them. But maybe you like the idea of this necklace, but its not quite what you want. I suggest you also check out the Custom Pet Paw Print Necklace and the Custom Fingerprint Leaf Necklace.
So if your looking at all these beautiful pieces of jewelry and wondering if they have your size or not, the answer is yes they do. That is the great thing about custom jewelry, you never have to worry about whether they will have someone’s size when you are shopping for yourself or for a gift. I know that is always a concern, even with jewelry, when shopping for us plus size ladies. You are always worried will this ring fit, will the choker go around my neck, will the necklace chain hit at the right spot. But with custom, that is never a worry because it is always made to fit you.
As I said previously, I am really in love with the handwriting necklace, but tell me in the comments below what your favorite piece is.
