2017 Holiday Ordering Notice:

November 23rd will be the last day to place an order of Custom Made Jewelry for guaranteed Christmas delivery (in the USA only). December 5th is the last day to order for guaranteed Christmas delivery of personalized, engraved, and hand stamped jewelry (in the USA only). Please note that we can only guarantee Christmas delivery within the United States. We can't predict delivery dates on International shipping, and this time of year may require extra shipping time to reach it's destination.

After the dates noted above, you may possibly receive your order before Christmas, but it is not guaranteed. Due to the very high volume of orders received during the holidays, our lead time increases 1-2 weeks above the normal processing time stated in the product descriptions. When placing your order, you may want to choose the Express Shipping option to expedite delivery once your order is made and ready to ship. Every year we have numerous last minute shoppers who need to have their personalized jewelry item before Christmas. These will be subject to a rush processing fee if we are physically able to accommodate their request. We are very sorry, but are unable to accommodate ANY Christmas requests for Custom Made Jewelry orders placed after November 30th. Please place your order by the stated cutoff dates if you definitely want it to arrive before Christmas. You can use the Add to Wish List feature when browsing our website products and then email your Wish List to others. Please also inform the email recipients of the cutoff dates as well.

If you are ordering one of our unique keepsakes after these stated deadlines, you can print out a Gift Presentation Card to let the gift recipient know that a handcrafted treasure is on it's way.

Thank you for your continued support and patronage of My Forever Child. We are truly appreciative, and we wish you peace, comfort, and strength for the upcoming Holiday season.

Engraving Information

All of our personalized and engraved jewelry is crafted right in our own studio by a skilled engraving professional. Each piece is individually configured to ensure that your specific inscription is produced in the best way possible.

Engraving Information:
Please take note of the number of allowable characters (which includes spaces and punctuation) that can be engraved listed in the product description. In some cases we can compress the letters if the wording is a couple of characters over the specified limit.
We reserve the right to change the font and the layout you selected for the best possible fit on the piece.

Engraving Fonts Available:

   Outlined Block-Capitals Engraving Font    Single Line Block-Capitals Font
Machine Engraved Block font in all capital letters. On larger pieces, it will be a filled double line block (first picture). On smaller pieces, it will be a single line block (second picture). The first letter in the word will be larger than the rest of the letters in the word (second picture), unless you type your personalization request in all capital letters (first picture).

Cursive Single Line Engraving Font
Machine Engraved Single Line Cursive font in capital and lower case letters.

Roman Filled Engraving Font
Machine Engraved Filled Roman font in capital and lower case letters.

Script Single Line Engraving Font
Machine Engraved Single Line Script font in capital and lower case letters.

Hand Stamped Engraving Font
Hand Stamped lettering in all capital letters, for a handcrafted artisan look. This style is only available on select items. Please note that the hand stamped lettering is not intended to look "perfect". Variations in letter placement, spacing, and depth of the letters are to be expected. This engraving is done with small steel alphabet tools and are hammered deeply into the silver, which is atop a steel block. The opposite side of the piece may have marr marks from the engraving process. Extra polishing is done to reduce the visibility of the marks.

Monograms:
Monograms are the classic way to personalize items. The initial of the first name is on the left, the initial of the last name is in the center in a larger size, and initial of the middle name is on the right. If you are doing a monogram of married couple, the initial of the husband's first name is on the left, the initial of the couple's last name is in the center in a larger size, and the initial of the wife's first name is on the right. We offer four beautiful Monogram styles: Interlocking Script, Roman, Circle Block, and Fancy Script.

We have several Monogram jewelry pieces. However If you wish to have a monogram on a jewelry piece that does not have the Monogram option (ex. on the back of a custom handprint-footprint pendant), please contact us with your request prior to placing your order. Monograms take up a large area of space on the piece, and may not be available on all our items. 

Monogram Styles: Interlocking Script, Roman, Circle Block, Fancy Script

 

Special Engraving:
~If you would like a HEART shaped icon, please use a pound symbol # in the engraving field, example: Always In My #
~If you would like a STAR shaped icon, please use an asterisk symbol * in the engraving field, example: My Little *
~Please note that the star and heart symbols will take up 2 character spaces when they are engraved. Please allow for this when entering your desired inscription as you place your order.

~We can engrave in other languages!

Please input the exact way the engraving should read in your online order and also in a separate email to confirm your special personalization. 

*There is a $10 labor charge per item for engraving in these languages, your credit card will be charged the difference after your order is placed.
*These languages are only available on our machine engraved pieces. Not available in hand stamped font or on the Posh Mommy Jewelry.

Engraving Policy:
Items that are personalized/engraved for you are not returnable or refundable, unless there is an error on our part. Engraved pieces are generally not able to be fixed and must be completely remade, which requires new material and labor. Please double check all spelling and dates prior to submitting your order. You will also receive an email with your order confirmation. It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of the personalization and details of your order. If you realize that there is an error, please contact us ASAP to see if we are able to halt production and correct the error. If you had submitted incorrect information for your order, and we had already engraved your item, you will be required to pay a charge for the reworking of the piece, plus the return postage back to you. Please email us for a price quote.

About our Engravables:
Sterling silver is a relatively soft metal which scratches easily during normal wear. Please note that sterling silver WILL scratch if it rubs against harder materials such as crystals, keys, stone and metal surfaces. This is normal and to be expected.

Each of our engraved items is polished a minimum of 4 different ways to reduce surface scratches. Some items may appear to have scratches or dings. These cannot be polished out, as they are part of the metal itself and enhance the character of the individual handcrafted piece. Sterling silver will take on a patina of it's own, developing numerous small scratches, with normal wear. Each of our engraved pieces is protectively wrapped to avoid damage during shipping.
