Handcrafted from an antique wax seal monogram stamp, this charm features a gothic script letter S 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.

I collect any interesting letter stamp or seal that I find and add it to my collection of monograms.
The bronze charm is approximately 1/2” round and hangs from an 18" bronze baby ball chain that closes with a ball chain connector clasp. Other types of chains are sold separately.
