Initial Charms in 18K Gold
I've received such positive feedback highlighting initial charm trends that I thought I would share another of my favorite charms! Below is an initial charm in 18k solid gold. I love the brightness of the 18k gold combined with the subtlety of unblackened text . The diamond cabochon adds brilliant sparkle to the finished piece. They hang from a gorgeous gold drawn cable chain.
Initial jewelry isn't just for ladies either! Check back next week for some trendy initial items for men!
Personalized Pave Initial Charms
Last week I touched upon 14k personalized initial charms on Trendy Tuesday and shared my family jumble necklace that I absolutely adore. This week I want to share another great example of an initial charm with a little bling!
Pictured below is our pave diamond initial charm on a dainty 14k solid gold square charm. The word 'pave' (pronounced pa vay) is derived from the French word meaning "pavement". The diamonds are set closely together and held in place by beads of gold. It creates a sparkling surface of diamonds with little space between them. Click on the picture to order your letter today!
Shine on you colored diamond!
It's Tuesday and I'm ready to talk trends!
This week I want to touch upon colored diamonds. Of course everyone is familiar with traditional white diamonds, but if you want your custom jewelry to have a more modern, chic look, you should consider colored diamonds. They are available in almost every hue of the rainbow - perfect for those looking to match wedding, graduation or bat mitzvah color themes. Colored diamonds are a great substitute for birthstones too, as they are much more brilliant and all around better gems. Take a look at some recent pieces I made with these beauties:

Warm up your Fall wardrobe with 14k yellow gold
As I was dropping the kiddos off for their first day of school last week, it dawned on me that Fall is just around the corner - even if it is currently 96 degrees in Savannah... As the temperatures begin to fall, consider the change of seasons as the perfect time to warm up your wardrobe with 14k gold jewelry!
Gold jewelry was prominent in the 2015 Fall Fashion Shows in Paris and New York; it complimented the darker greys, greens and reds that were all over the runway. We use a warm color of gold called Hamilton yellow - it has has a deep vintage look as compared to some of the very bright yellow golds you may see.
14k Personalized Gold Cuffs & Bracelets
These will become your standard, never-take-it-off, "how did I ever live without this piece of jewelry" bracelets. We offer lots of arm candy! 9mm gold cuffs (perfect for both men and women), slender 5mm cuffs, skinny cuffs, wide bangles and skinny bangles all are great for layering!
14k Hand Stamped Gold Charms
I love the versatility of our 14k gold charms - you get to design every aspect to make a one-of-a-kind charm to fit you perfectly! This includes text, font, size, shape, layout and necklace length. Knowing the necklace I'm wearing is unique to just me means a lot - I won't see someone else wearing it in the grocery store!
Don't forget a little ear BLING to complete your outfit!
We would love to create a custom 14k gold design just for you - feel free to call us at 800.554.8196. Tune in next Tuesday to see what is
How do you stack up?!
This Tuesday I want to highlight one of my absolute favorite trends - stacking and layering jewelry. There is an art to pairing and layering the right pieces and I've got a few tips for those who may be perplexed on where to begin.
Tip 1: Go for a graduated effect. Pair delicate, dainty short necklaces with a long jumble necklace.
Tip 2: Don't be afraid to mixed metals and textures. Gone are the days when you have pigeonhole yourself into one of two categories: gold wearer or silver wearer. Wear them both! Mixing metals is a simple way to look effortlessly modern and chic. Create contrast by wearing different textures. I love to pair my 14k gold hammered and sterling silver satin bangles.
Tip 3: Dress up your digits by adding slender stacking rings to your right hand ring. At the moment, I'm pairing three 14k gold skinny stacking rings (one to symbolize each of my children) with my 3mm 14k right hand anniversary ring. Andreas gave me this ring with a secret message inside to commemorate our 10th wedding anniversary. This right hand combo is a modern, stylish counterpart to the traditional wedding ring and band on my left hand.
Tip 4: Pair long, delicate earrings with petite studs. I find our 14k solid wire hook earrings accentuate the curvatures in my jawline and the 14k star stud adds a little fun pop!
I hope you enjoyed my go-to tips for stacking jewelry! I would love to see how you are layering your favorite Metal Pressions pieces - tag us in pictures on Facebook or use the #metalpressions on Instagram.
