REAL 14k Gold thickly bonded to a base metal core. It is up to 100x thicker than plated jewelry. It is generally acceptable for anyone with sensitive skin to wear. I personally have highly sensitive skin and am able to wear all of our metals without any issues at all. Gold-filled does not tarnish. It features all of the benefits of wearing real gold at a fraction of the cost. The base metal is never exposed, so there is no difference that the eye can see. The color is a beautiful bright gold and looks especially beautiful on warm & dark skin tones.
REAL Rose Gold thickly bonded to a base metal core. It is up to 100x thicker than plated jewelry. In order to get the pink color, a small amount of copper is added to the gold. This can occasionally cause reactions in people with highly sensitive skin, but it is such a small amount that it generally is ok. Rose Gold-Filled does not tarnish and is an absolutely beautiful color. It looks great mixed with Silver and is especially beautiful on cool & light skin tones.
Real .925 grade solid Sterling Silver. All silver tarnishes and Sterling Silver is no exception. Interestingly, it has a great bit to do with personal body PH levels. Some people with alkaline bodies can wear silver and it will look new forever, others can turn a piece in a matter of days if they are more acidic. Either way, silver can be easily cleaned with our polishing pads included in each purchase. These pads can also be purchased in our shop if needed.
In order to preserve your item’s longevity, please remove your necklace when you take a shower, go for a swim, or work out. Sweat, chlorine water, and perfume can cause Sterling to tarnish quickly as well as cause the ink to fade on all metals. If your necklace gets wet it will not ruin it, but it is very helpful to dry it off as soon as possible. **Please avoid spraying perfume or applying lotion while wearing the necklace. Remove your jewelry first, apply perfume/lotion, then put your jewelry back on after application has absorbed into your skin.** With proper care these necklaces should last for many years.
Each item is will arrive in a small box with a bow and ready for giving. If you purchase multiple items, please check the bottoms of the boxes as we always mark them for easy identification. We also offer a gift-wrap upgrade for $1 that includes a hand written gift card (left blank if no gift message is provided), luxury satin ribbon, and decorative washi tape.
WHY PURCHASE FROM US?
This is our full-time passion. I (Brianna) started making jewelry when I was only 8 years old and I have lived & breathed it ever since. Two years ago my husband (Seth) quit his job and joined me full-time and together we put our whole hearts into creating what we hope will be a fantastic shopping experience for you. From start to finish, our goal is to create art that inspires and has significant meaning for you, hence our business name *Words By Heart*.
Each bar is hand-cut by us in our workshop. We use 20 gauge metal, which is heavier/thicker than the widely used 24 gauge. This enables our bars to hold up longer than most bars on the market. Our chain is sturdy and sparkling. Providing you with a high quality product that you can feel good about is very important to us! We do not skimp on quality and purchase all of our metal, supplies, & tools from other small businesses within the USA. When you support us, you also support a whole network of small family-owned businesses here in America.
We know sometimes things can get lost in transit - that is why we guarantee delivery of all items. If it is lost we will replace it.
We want you to have a 5-star experience every time you shop with us. If you don’t absolutely LOVE your purchase, please contact us and we will work with you to make sure you leave as happy as possible.
** This necklace is HAND STAMPED by me. Hand Stamping is very different than engraving. It requires a hammer and a metal stamp, which has a single letter on the end of it. Each letter is then hammered into the metal one by one - by hand, and therefore is not machine precise. The result is a beautifully unique piece each and every time. **
