Chan Luu Initial Necklaces
While jewelry is inherently meaningful, there is a long history of adornment being inscribed or personalized in various ways. Often this is done as a way to commemorate an event or a person, or simply to remind ourselves of something special.
And the best thing is that personalized jewelry is always in fashion, making it a great gift for yourself or others.

We have great artists that create personalized jewelry in the form of charms or necklaces and bracelets that can be stamped or engraved. Custom orders do take some time, so allow for about 2-4 weeks when purchasing custom gifts.
You will also find a wide selection of charms already in-store that can be combined to create a very special necklace or bracelet for you or your loved ones.
The beauty of creating a necklace or bracelet with charms is that the wearer can add to it, creating his or her own story to commemorate special moments. A simple initial or inspirational charm with a birthstone is a great place to start. Combine different sizes or styles of charms to add variety!
If you are a pet lover, one of our artists creates fantastic custom pet portrait charms for necklaces, bracelets, or key rings!

Included in the package that she sends is the custom stamp, with a photo of your pet on the box.

Silver + Gold October 03 2016, 0 Comments
Pairing silver and gold is hot right now. So how does one go about wearing both metals? Wear it with confidence!
You can start with jewelry that already combines both silver and gold, as can be seen in work by Adel Chefridi, Sarah McGuire, Destiny Ray, or Philippa Roberts, among many others.
Or, you can combine the two by layering silver and gold rings, bracelets, or necklaces. If you have multiple ear piercings, that is another option for layering! The possibilities are endless. Have more questions? We are more than happy to help!
