All personalized and non-personalized jewelry created by chip&chisel is made with the finest metals available. Unless otherwise specified, all jewelry items are made with sterling silver, 14kt gold filled, and 14kt rose gold filled metals. Actual 14kt gold is very soft and not ideal for stamping, so gold filled is used in its place. This is not the same as gold plated. Gold filled is an actual solid layer of gold that is pressure bonded to a suitable supporting metal or alloy using equipment that carefully controls heat and pressure. It offers the same characteristics as solid gold at an affordable price point while still offering quality, beauty, and longevity. Those with metal allergies that can wear solid gold can also wear gold filled metals without worry of an allergic reaction. With proper care, designs created with gold filled metal stand the test of time.
HOW TO ORDER
In the checkout process, a form will appear before you can add the item to your cart. Please be as specific as possible with your personalization. If we have any questions or concerns about the specific design, we will email you directly - your prompt response is greatly appreciated. Each product has a character limit based on the design. Please be sure to remain within the character limit so as not to delay the production of your item.
THE PROCESS OF HANDSTAMPING
Hand-stamping is done using individual stamping tools. Every single letter, number or design is stamped one at a time by Lindsy. With this process, no two pieces will be exactly the same. Letters, numbers, designs, etc. may not be perfectly straight or aligned and spacing may vary. These should not be looked at as imperfections as this is what makes your piece a one-of-a-kind and uniquely created just for you!
We take great pride in everything we do - this includes the packaging in which we send your item. Your order comes gift-ready in a pretty little package! If you need separate packaging for a multiple item order, please be sure to select the appropriate shipping option at checkout, otherwise everything will be shipped together. Our letter-pressed materials are hand made by Petals&Press, also located in Southwest Washington!
