Custom Signature Necklace

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

I bought a really cheap je t’aime necklace a few years ago that I wore all the time (…until it turned green). It had very thin letters and looked fragile and almost hand-made, which is why I liked it so much. My sister (Katy) also noticed it and loved it. Katy is very picky when it comes to anything she’s going to wear, especially jewelry, and this makes shopping for her fairly impossible. For Christmas last year, I wanted to get her something really meaningful. I had just found out that I would be moving away from the city we both lived in (as next-door neighbors no less), and it had been a stressful year for Katy with finishing law school and taking the bar exam. I thought of my je t’aime necklace that Katy loved. I did a lot of internet searching for je t’aime necklaces and found that most of the well-made ones I found did not look at all hand-made, which made them look less personal to me. Then I stumbled upon signature necklaces and found Brevity, and I knew pretty quickly that that’s what I wanted to get her. It was as personal as possible—my hand-written “I love you” in French to her.
Katy loves the necklace. She often wears it with a gold necklace passed down to her from our great great aunt. They look beautiful paired together.

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

My Leah was very close with her grandparents. They were married for 72 years before her grandmother passed away. Their relationship epitomized what a marriage should be, so when I saw the Signature Necklace I knew that I wanted to get their signatures on a necklace as a wedding gift for Leah. It was something personal and sentimental and also a symbol of love and commitment. Leah absolutely loved it when I gave it to her before the wedding.

Calligraphy Necklace: Calypso Belle

The story behind the custom calligraphy necklace, Calypso Belle.

I chose to do a Brevity necklace with my daughter’s name on it. It took us a very long time to get our daughter so she is an extra special blessing in our lives. Ironically, even with years of waiting, we still didn’t have a name for our baby girl when she was born. We really struggled with finding the perfect fit for our little angel. We wanted something that was unique, but not too unique. We wanted something that had meaning and history. We wanted something that fit her. Calypso means hidden one, and since our daughter was hidden from us for so long, it seemed like a natural fit. We also love its uniqueness and ties to the sea. Belle was my great-grandmother’s name, which we thought was lovely and had great traditional history. The combination of Calypso Belle – meaning hidden beauty – worked wonderfully together and fits our baby girl perfectly. Of course, there are people out there who do not like it (and shockingly aren’t afraid to tell us, where did people’s manners go?) but we think it is beautiful.

Custom Signature Necklace

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

The story behind this signature is that it’s my dad’s. He died of cancer in 2010. I’m a big fan of tattoos so I had something he had written to me on a card traced out and tattooed to my side. My mom hates tattoos, but I showed her what I got, and it made her cry she liked it so much. I told her she should do something similar but she did not want a tattoo. A few years later, I saw your Signature Necklace on Pinterest. I thought, “how perfect for my mom!” I was a little skeptical, but decided it would be worth a try. I was debating if I should tell her or try to keep it a secret. I didn’t know how to get a copy of his signature without seeming suspicious, because everything I have says “Dad” on it and is not his actual name that my mom would use. So I just asked her if she had anything and of course she asks what for. I had to tell her, but she was so excited she agreed to find something. It says “Love Skip”, which is what he wrote on a card to her. It’s so great and even the dot over the “i” is in there. It’s so perfect and unique. Everyone just loves it.

Calligraphy Necklace: Elin & Elliette

The story behind the custom calligraphy necklace, Elin & Elliette.

The story behind the necklace is my two beautiful daughters. My husband gave me a necklace with my first daughter’s name, Elin, when she was born. I have literally never taken it off. It sounds silly, but just looking at it or touching it brings me joy and helps me get through the day sometimes. We chose unique names for our daughters and I love when people look at my necklace and ask what it says – it gives me a chance to brag about my biggest accomplishment: Elin and now Elliette!

Custom Signature Necklace

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

I actually developed my signature – or at least had inspiration for it – at an early age. My father always signed our last name with a lower case “g”. There was something almost rebellious that I recognized about that, especially being taught the “correct” way to form a capital G in school. I guess what solidified it for me was an issue I had with my English teacher in my junior year of high school. She decided to make an example of me and my signature in class and decided to start subtracting points if anyone did not form their letters properly. Well, in the body of my work, I always formed a proper capital G. However, I felt my name was my own. It was an expression of me as well as my dad and so I continued to write my lower case g when writing my name at the top of the paper. She continued to subtract points. I was always a good student, but I felt I had to stand behind it because it was a personal choice. It was my name and should’ve been MY choice as to how it was written. I never went back to a capital G after that. It has morphed throughout the years (and become a little less legible due to signing many checks!) but has always had the same spirit behind it!

Custom Signature Necklaces – The Perfect Bridesmaid Gift

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

For months I was in search of the perfect gifts for my six bridesmaids. I wanted to give them a gift that was unique and would invoke special meaning to each of them. But I also wanted the gifts to be similar enough so my girls would feel like they were a part of something exclusive. I came across Brevity and I knew I had found what I was searching for. When I saw Brevity’s Signature Necklace, I fell in love. The straightforwardness of a person’s signature immortalized in metal was just what I had been searching for. Each one would be different in the simplest way, but all the same to make a unified set. Anna is amazing and was very responsive to all my questions and concerns – I am a bride after all! I just received the necklaces in the mail and I am jealous, I wish I had one myself. Thank you, Anna, for helping make my special day perfect!

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

The Michelle signature necklace was a gift to my stepdaughter, Mallory, for her 25th birthday. Michelle was her mother, who passed away after suffering a brain aneurysm in 2006. Mallory bravely attended her senior prom later the same week, then graduated high school, celebrated her 18th birthday, and left for college soon after. She is a strong, smart, and beautiful young woman living life with a passion she inherited from her mother Michelle. The signature necklace is a lovely reminder of a woman who lived her life fully without regrets.

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

I’m giving the necklace to my daughter, Dana, as a graduation/new job gift. She’s moved out of state and was a bit concerned about being so far from home. I thought it would be a nice reminder of our relationship to always have “me” around.

I’m so proud of all her accomplishments and the fact that she’s ventured out on her own, making a new life for herself.

Custom Signature Necklace

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

This is my father’s handwriting. He has a very unique way of making his “I” so it is easily recognizable within my family. I purchased this necklace for my mother for their 35th wedding anniversary. My mother has loved my father since she was 17 and over the last 35 years their marriage has seen some amazing highs and some devastating lows, but the one thing that remained constant was their love for one another and their strength as a couple to overcome any obstacle in their way. As a recent newlywed myself, I hope that 35 years down the road I look at my husband with the same love and admiration I see in my mother’s eyes for my father everyday.
