When I was given the opportunity to necklace from Hayjac designs, I decided I would like to put together a necklace for one of my wonderful mothers-in-law. I had such a hard time settling on one design… not for lack of beautiful options, but because I couldn’t settle on just one! I pondered and considered and generally enjoyed browsing and finally decided the Key to My Heart Necklace would be just right for my mother-in-law. I had it personalized with my son and my nephew’s names.
The necklace arrived wrapped in a protective plastic bag. Inside was a silvery mesh pouch, a polishing cloth, and information about Hayjac designs. The necklace was carefully wrapped around a card, which helped to keep the cord from tangling. Overall, I was very impressed with the care taken in wrapping.
When I removed the necklace from the pouch, I was immediately struck by the quality of the necklace. I wish my photos did this piece more justice! The charms are thicker than I am used to seeing in necklaces of this type. They also had a smooth, shiny finish rather than the usual brushed finish. It created a necklace that looks much more valuable.
The stamped letters are deep and even. The little key and heart are sized just right to go with the charms. The rings that hold the charms on are all even and neat… one of those little details that I always notice. For an additional charge, you also have an option to add spacers between the charms.
I love the style of the silver chain. It has a small ball of silver every inch. This subtle detail suits the charm necklace very well and makes it stand out more from the typical chain.
The polishing cloth was a nice touch. It shows that Hayjac Designs has an interest in seeing their creations hold their beauty for a long time.
These necklaces would make wonderful gifts for moms, grandmothers, aunts, and more. They have several personalized designs appropriate for the males on your gift list, as well. There’s not just necklaces… bracelets, key-chains, and wine charms round out the many beautiful selections.
Pros: Large selection of beautiful designs. Personalized charms with multiple font options. Large selection of add-on charms and spacers allow for full customization. Care in packaging and fast shipping.
Cons: I did find the prices a bit higher than I typically see, but as I noted above, the quality of the materials are much higher than I have previously experienced.
I received this at a discount in exchange for my opinion. As someone who relies on honest reviews to make purchases, I work hard to provide other consumers with a thorough, truthful, and unbiased opinion of my personal experiences.
Details: Hayjac Designs is named after my two children, Hayden and Jack. I started the company in spring, 2003, after the kids were old enough to attend school and I had a little more time on my hands. Because I have always been interested in jewelry design, I started taking artisan classes and researching ways to design sterling silver products. After working with a local jewelry supplier to find just the right pieces, I began making custom jewelry for family and friends. Soon enough, the requests were pouring in and I started selling to local boutiques.
Every piece of jewelry is hand made with extreme care. Because I hand stamp the discs, drill, buff and polish all of the jewelry myself, I can guarantee that every piece that comes out of Hayjac Designs will be unique and top quality.
My jewelry is not just for moms. It is designed for anyone who wants a constant reminder of someone special. It is also great for those who have a meaningful word or phrase which provides them with inspiration. Personalized jewelry makes a wonderful gift for someone you love, and of course, it is nice to treat yourself as well! ~ From Hayjac Designs’ “About Us” Page
