Vintage Stamp Jewels

Family Tree Necklace

Personal Charm

Jewelry you can wear every day doesn’t need to be . . . everyday. Each elegant, handmade family tree necklace from Vintage Stamp Jewels takes on a personalized meaning for the woman who wears it.

The delicate family tree charm represents the life connections that matter to each of us. Then, you choose the color and number of Swarovski crystal charms that accompany the tree. The bezel-set crystals can represent any important
moments and people—birthstones for children or grandchildren, milestones, anniversaries, or any special date. You can even specify the order that the crystals are placed in.

Maker Monica Sisk started making jewelry while at home with her young children, with the goal of creating unique and thoughtful pieces. She quickly attracted a following for her customized, classic designs. Each is handmade in Maryland and makes a meaningful gift. Monica even packages each necklace in a present-ready box.

These personalized conversation pieces give any woman a reason to talk about the meaning behind the charms—or simply keep them close to her heart.

These individualized necklaces are each as unique as the women who wear them.

    Hi, I'm Donna. More a question than a comment - how long is the chain that holds these beautiful mementos? I am a plus-size woman and I need a chain at least 22 inches for comfort - could I pay an extra fee if I wanted to order and get a chain I could wear?

    @Monica That would be fantastic. I would love to get this for my mother, but we are in the same boat in needing a chain longer than the 18 Inches currently available.

    Are all the birthstones the same size? I was thinking of this for my cousin for Christmas. She has 4 kids and almost 10 grandkids (one is due in December). I was thinking 4 slightly bigger for the kids and smaller for the grandkids. Silly? Is it that customizable? And how much would 14 birthstones be?

    @Pam Sorry, I see this question are already been asked. Wondering, if I order 8 charms, can four be on one side of the tree and four on the other so the tree is in the middle

    @Pam Great question - we can certainly do that on our end. You just need to work with The Grommet's checkout process and be sure to leave me the information needed to place the crystals in the correct order.

    We are working with The Grommet right now to have a notes section available.

    Love this idea, but one question: All of the images show the birthstones on one side of the tree of life. Can the tree be centered?

    Thank you.

    Since there is a max of 9 charms and I need 14... can I purchase additional charms? I will be ordering 2 necklaces, one with three charms and one with 14 charms. Should I order an 8 charm and a 9 charm and specify which charms go on each necklace?

  • Tiffany

    It would also work with a bigger jump clasp so I can slide them off and on...

    Seems to me this would be nicer if the charms were removable and available separately, so the wearer could add to them as her family increased; that's how all the other "family charm necklaces" work. It would also give the wearer the choice of wearing all or just some of the charms at any one time, for whatever reason she might choose to wear fewer than all of them.

  • Monica
    Monica – Special Guest
    10/13/2015 11:06 AM

    @LISA Lisa, that is a great point and what we could do, is make your necklace with a slightly larger jump ring so that you can slide it over the clasp. If that is something that you are interested in, make a note of that in the notes section at checkout!

    Thanks again for your insightful comment

    @Monica The ability to add charms is necessary. Our son is a widower with two sons. He's getting married in November and hubby and I thought this would be a terrific Christmas present. However, they plan on adding to their family so would need the larger jump ring and also ability to purchase additional charms as their family increases.

    I would also be interested in a longer silver chain (perhaps 20" ) for the Family Tree Necklace. Could you let me know when that length is available?

    Thanks, Pat

    @Patricia Hi Patricia! The Grommet is working on that right now. The cost will rise a bit, for any inch over 18 the cost will be: $1.00 per inch!

    Keep watching for the Grommet to add that option!

    @Mike m-Mike i had to cancel the order re-enter it to get to the " guest message " area to leave the instructions. But I have to say when I got to the placed order screen it looks like what I typed about how I wanted the crystals hung on the necklace it appears to be what will be written on the gift card for the necklace when it is sent to me. I hope your right that some one is going to read the " gift message " and know how the hang the crystals on the neck lace.
