What is personalized jewelry?

Can I just tell you how refreshing it is to have someone make you something that totally lives up to everything you hoped it'd be? It’s absolutely gorgeous! I love it! Thank you SO much!

What type of jewelry should I choose?

I've chosen which piece of jewelry to design. How do I make sure it's the right size?

Pair of Rainbow Rosecliff earrings, Rosecliff Sapphire earrings, Grand White Topaz earrings, & a Rosecliff Amethyst earring.

I'm designing a piece with several different birthstones. How do I arrange them?

What's the best way to use initials in a piece of personalized jewelry for moms?

Our polished 14k-gold discs, engraved with an initial on both sides, are a great way to personalize jewelry. You can use them on their own, accent them with neutral-colored stones, or arrange them so that each initial sits next to the birthstone of the person represented.

And remember, you're not limited to one initial per person! You can arrange three (or more) to create a monogram, or even spell out a name like Mom, Mama, or Nana. Spelling out a baby's name in initial discs makes an especially lovely push present (try accenting either side of the name with the baby's birthstone).

My son gave me a beautiful Haverhill birthstone necklace for my birthday. I love that it represents the 5 things I love most in this life. I've worn this necklace every day since it arrived.


Can I use symbols instead of initials?

How do I design a piece that includes both children's and parents' birthstones?

What should I do if I don't want to use a pink birthstone for a boy?

You must be talking about an October baby -- that month has two pink birthstones! One alternative to pink is a neutral stone, such as White Topaz, Moonstone, or Diamond.

Or select any stone that you feel best represents the child -- consider a deep blue Sapphire or bold red Ruby. (You can follow these suggestions when selecting a stone to represent yourself, too, if you're not partial to your birthstone.)

How do I choose between yellow and white gold?

If it turns out the recipient prefers a different color, you can have the jewelry re-set free of charge within 30 days of delivery; just contact Customer Service. (After 30 days, a $55 fee applies.)
