- How it works
As personal as it gets. Make your mark.
Your signature is unique - it is a symbol of your identity and is the mark that you use to represent yourself to the world. It is one of the most personal things about a person - the distillation of a one-of-a-kind personality into a mark that was developed over the course of a life. Whether you choose to wear your own John Hancock or honor a loved one by wearing theirs, our Signature line is as personal as it gets.

Made with love.
Brevity is committed to quality and craftsmanship. I use non-tarnishing stainless steel as a base for sturdiness and durability, in order to create designs that look delicate, but that stand up to every day use. Whether in stainless steel, gold dipped or 14k solid gold, you can trust that you are buying jewelry that will become your new favorite every day wear.
Made in the USA.
Brevity is committed to supporting local workers and economies by producing all of our jewelry here in the USA (with the exception of the VOTE pin). While this might mean a higher cost of goods for Brevity, I believe in supporting local suppliers and vendors that ensure safe and fair working conditions, and the highest quality products.
Send your gifts in Brevity's signature packaging, with a black and gold box and a personalized note.
Get exactly what you want.
Prior to manufacturing, we will send a design proof for your approval, so that you know exactly what you are getting.
Non-custom orders typically ship in 3-5 business days, via the shipping method selected.
Custom orders are made with love and have a longer lead time, but they are worth the wait! Please allow 6-8 weeks for the production of custom orders. For your convenience, an estimated ship date is provided at the top of each custom product page.
A rush option is available for an additional fee. At the latest, rush orders will ship 15 business days after the proof has been approved, but we can often accommodate even shorter leadtimes. Just get in touch!
If we aren't able to get your order to you in the time frame that you desire, we can provide you with a printable gift card that features your custom design which you can give to your loved one until the real deal arrives. See a sample gift card here.
International Duty Fees
International ship times vary depending on customs procedures. Packages may be subject to import tax upon arrival, for which Brevity is not responsible. While UPS packages are more easily tracked than USPS, UPS import taxes tend to be significantly higher than USPS, so please select your shipping accordingly. We are unfortunately unable to provide an estimate of the import tax.
What materials do you use?
stainless steel: stainless steel pendant, sterling silver chain. We use stainless steel because it does not rust or tarnish, and for its strength, so that our designs can be both delicate and strong.
sterling silver: sterling silver pendant and chain
gold dipped: gold dipped pendant, gold-filled chain
14k gold: 14k gold pendant and chain
Where is your jewelry made?
With the exception of the enamel VOTE pin, all Brevity Jewelry is produced and assembled within the United States. Though it is more costly to produce goods in the USA, I believe in supporting local economies and workforces.
Brevity is a woman-owned, small business located in Brooklyn, NY. Thank you for supporting a small business! Every order is appreciated.
What is your return/exchange policy?
Non-personalized items (excluding 14k finishes) are eligible to be refunded or exchanged when returned in their original condition within 30 days from the order date. Please get in touch to initiate a return or exchange. Once we have received the returned items, we will promptly issue a refund to the payment method used for purchase, less the shipping costs.
Personalized items cannot be returned or exchanged. Custom orders cancelled prior to the receipt of the proof will be refunded 75% of the order total. Orders cancelled after the proof has been submitted but prior to manufacturing will be refunded 50% of the order total. We are unable to refund orders that have been submitted for manufacturing.
All 14k jewelry is made to order, and as such is non-refundable and is exempt from being returned. Please see here for additional Returns & Warranty policies.
How can I best care for my Brevity Jewelry?
When not wearing your jewelry, store it in a sealed bag (a pouch or plastic polybag is fine). With the exception of 14k jewelry, we recommend removing your jewelry while swimming, showering or otherwise exposing it to chemicals.
14k metals and stainless steel can accumulate dirt or fingerprints - we recommend cleaning them with a gentle dish soap and warm water.
Sterling silver pieces can oxidize over time when not worn, so store them in a sealed bag when not in use. You can clean sterling silver with a non-abrasive jewelry polishing cloth or silver jewelry cleaner.
Gold plated jewelry can be wiped clean with a soft cloth (I use the cloth that comes with my eye glasses). Deeper cleaning can be done with gentle dish soap and warm water. Avoid jewelry cleaners, antibacterial soaps, and polishing cloths, as they can affect the plating.
I ordered a custom necklace with my late father’s heart tracing (EKG) to give to my mother for what would have been their 55th anniversary. She cried tears of comfort and happiness when she put it on- knowing his heart would be close to hers always. Thanks Anna!
Beautiful bracelet! Brought my Mom to tears as her Christmas gift! Highly recommend as the perfect sentimental gift.
I wanted to do something special for my mom to commemorate my grandmother for my upcoming wedding. Her birthday was October 1 and I was getting married October 2 so it was extra special. Anna made a beautiful bracelet with "Love Always" in my grandmother's handwriting. My mom absolutely loved it (tears upon opening!) I highly recommend her work to anyone looking for a unique and sentimental gift.
In May of 2012 the week before Mothers Day I lost my brother. He was 40 years old with 2 young children. We were devastated. It was a very hard Mothers Day for my mom to say the least and every year we are reminded of that horrible phone call that affected our family! This was taken from a card he had given her that she had saved. I cannot wait for her to open it and I know it will be perfect and defiantly special! I will hopefully post pictures on my Instagram soon!
My grandfather was my father by all measures but bloodlines. Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of him walking me down the aisle. I was a definite (grand)daddy's girl, and I craved these father-daughter moments with him. He passed away unexpectedly this past May, and now my wedding day is very quickly approaching. I took a flight home two hours after receiving what will for a lifetime be one of the only devastating moments that has brought me to my knees. I faced every fear I could have never imagined by walking into a home without his voice, touching the belongings he would never again hold in his hand, searching for him in places I would never again find him. Out of the absolute blue, while searching through his bedroom, I stumbled upon a printout of my grandfather's EKG. His heartbeat. The mark of a man whose laugh was so infectious, whose eyes gave away a heartful of contagious love, whose vibrant life was now summed up in these tiny peaks portraying the strongest heart I've ever known. I contacted Anna almost immediately, and she didn't even hesitate when she told me she could transform the printout into a bracelet for me. My wedding is now two weeks away, and although I can't hug him extra tight before walking down the aisle, although I'll never know how his eyes might have lit up extra special with overwhelming love when he saw me for the first time in my dress, looking at me the way that only a real father can look at his little girl who has suddenly turned into a woman, I will carry him with me, and I will wear his heartbeat so proudly on the wrist he would have held as he gave me away. There will be so many moments that feel impossible to get through without him, not just on my wedding day, but every day for the rest of my life, but I'm finding that I can truly carry him with me, and I always will. His heartbeat on my wrist will be an incredible reminder of the man who taught me how to love, who packed so much love into the brief twenty one years I sp...
