Handcrafted from a vintage wax seal monogram stamp, this charm features a fancy block letter J surrounded by a border of tiny beaded dots that can denote your personal monogram or someone special in your life. This charm looks lovely by itself or combined with other charms.
A monogram is a connection. It links a ruler to his people, a brand to its customer, a bride to a groom, one generation of a family to another, an individual to her future. Monograms connect us to another time and place, to loved ones past and present, and to what we find essential in our own lives.
The king most often credited for establishing the monogram is Charlemagne (768-814), but the earliest known evidence of monograms is found in 6th century B.C. Roman coins, which were marked with the ruler’s initials to authenticate and legitimize them.
I collect any interesting letter stamp or seal that I find and add it to my collection of monograms.
The fine silver charm is approximately 1/2” round and hangs from an 18" stainless steel baby ball chain that closes with a ball chain connector clasp. Other types of chains are sold separately.
Each piece of jewelry from The Silver Acorn comes packaged in a tasteful gift box with a meaning card ready for gift-giving.
Handcrafted in my studio in Spokane, Washington, each symbolic wax seal item from The Silver Acorn is hand-stamped in reclaimed fine silver or bronze and will be slightly different and uniquely yours.
