When Molly, the founder and talented designer behind The Urban Smith jewelry line asked if I would like to review a handwriting necklace made with my girls’ signatures, my answer was an emphatic “YES YES YES!”
I love personalized gifts, but The Urban Smith goes a step beyond simply putting a name on jewelry — they make a hand-crafted replica of the signature you provide. (Or in my toddler’s case, her initial!)
The process is really simple:
Take a photo of your child’s signature and upload it along with your chosen necklace style. They’ll email you back a proof, and once they get the OK, they’ll get to work creating your custom piece. (The website says 7-10 days, though I received mine sooner.)
I chose the Custom Handwriting Square Bar Necklace with one tag for my oldest daughter Lilu and one tag for my two year old daughter. Eight-year old Lilu took great care with her autograph, practicing many times before settling on her favorite. I used an “A” that my youngest daughter had doodled as her “signature.”
The finished piece was even more gorgeous than I was expecting — it is absolutely stunning! The design is so delicate that you barely feel like you’re even wearing a necklace, it matches everything, and the signatures are spot-on. I don’t even know if my photos do them justice!
I can’t tell you enough how beautiful these necklaces are! I loved what I saw so much that I also got one for my mom and my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. They are packaged so nicely when they arrive, so you don’t have to pick out a gift box and all that extra stuff — the work is already done for you! Here’s the design I chose for the grandmothers:
Mamas: if your significant other could use a little help in the gift-picking-out department, show them this and start dropping some not-so-subtle hints! Right now through May 3rd, The Urban Smith has a special Mother’s Day offer: 25% off with the code ILOVEMOM25
This would also make the perfect gift for grandmas, aunts, or any special person! (Like yourself!) I’ve worn my necklace every day since it arrived and I get compliments on it all the time. This is truly a statement piece and something to be treasured!
Oh, and they’re made in America! I always love to support women that are making big things happen (and believe me, this one is…The Urban Smith designs have been spotted on celebs like Kelly Ripa and in major magazines!)
