Decoded: Secret Message Jewelry

We’ve given solutions to shopping for the person that doesn’t wear jewelry, now what about the person with an understated style? People that strive for an extremely minimal look most likely won’t want their personalized jewelry to be so literal by spelling out names, quotes, and birthdays. Here are a few solutions to creating a meaningful piece for that special someone who likes to keep it simple.

 

Add text in binary code for secret text only the wearer will know…

 

Hide text on the inside of a bracelet, ring, or put it on the back of a pendant. The jewelry remains fashionable and simplistic while still having a personal meaning.

 

Use raised elements such as Braille or roman numerals to spell out names or dates discreetly. The wearer will know what the translation means and will also be able to feel this tactile component as a reminder.

 



 

 

 

 

 

Make a Statement - Inspirational Wide Rim Charms

 

Wide rimmed charms are one of our newer items and they really make a statement. This customer personalized her 1.25" 14k yellow gold wide rimmed disc with religious inspiration, making this piece a motivational statement and a fashion statement. The wide rim adds depth and weight making the charm more substantial than flat charms. The silver and gold contrast is enhanced with the 14k yellow gold cross element in the center. Finally, the text circles around the cross symbolizing the infinite and continuous meaning to the wearer.

Shop for Jewelry Like You Never Have Before - Design a Jumble Necklace at Metal Pressions

If there’s one thing that gets us excited in the shop it’s a “jumble necklace” order. These arrangements truly utilize the customization process that we offer and they always come out stunning!

As you’ve probably heard us say before, “Design options are endless at Metal Pressions”.  We know that this can be overwhelming to some and luckily we’re here to help!

When this customer came to us she only knew her custom text and that she wanted multiple charms in different shapes, but she couldn’t visualize her necklace any further. This was the perfect time for us to employ our online jewelry designer to show her some different layout examples. Our innovative software is crucial to our process because it helps you get your creative juices flowing and visualize your end result. It is a wonderful feeling to be a part of the design process and make your dream become a reality.

These necklaces move with you, so creating depth is a necessity to overcome the inevitable overlapping of charms. It’s easy to add depth on a jumble necklace by using multiple charm shapes and by combining rimmed and non-rimmed charms. This necklace furthers the illusion of depth by the contrasting 14k yellow gold rims and raised elements on sterling silver. You can also enhance the feeling of movement by applying multiple font types and text orientations. For a finishing touch add flush set diamonds to catch light and add some sparkle.

One of my favorite things about jumble necklaces is their wearable diversity. Wear all the charms together for a statement piece or just one or two for a more minimalistic look – they can easily be changed out to fit your mood. So what are you waiting for? Start designing yours here!

 

 

Memorial Bracelet - Always in My Heart

Losing anyone close to you is extremely heartbreaking and difficult to live through, but when it's your spouse, that grief can be exponential. When customers come to us to create memorial pieces for life's most difficult tragedies, we find that they prefer simple designs that commemorate the lives and the love they have for the one they lost.

We made this wide silver bracelet for a wife that lost her husband. The phrase "Always in My Heart" is stamped in our formal script font. To give the piece a little bit of depth and contrast it was accented with a raised 14K heart. The inside has plenty of space for other personal information that you may prefer to keep private.

While it pains us deeply to hear stories of our customers' losses and heartbreaks, we are always honored when they select us to make such meaningful pieces of jewelry for them.
