I'm not normally a jewelry fan but Wow Import's personalized jewelry intrigued me. The more I looked at what the offered, the more I was drawn to it. When it came time to choose what piece I would review I had a hard time deciding between a name necklace and a name ring. I finally settled on a name ring and chose to have the word "Chayim" engraved in it.
Why that word?
I chose it to wear as a memorial on my hand in honor or the baby we lost this past summer in a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, as well as the baby we lost a few months after we were married and began trying for our family. Chayim means "Life" and to wear that word as a memorial is significant to me because my heart knows my babies are alive in in heaven waiting for me.
Opening my package when it came, was like a sacred moment. I just stared at the ring for a moment, then, slipped it on my finger while getting tears on my eyes. I wear it with my wedding band and engagement ring, and though it doesn't fully match my white gold set in color tone, it has so much meaning to me, it is staying on there.
While most people will use WOW Imports to order name jewelry as gifts for those they love, some may consider using the personalize service for emotional significance as I did, by choosing a symbolic word or lost loved one's name to have engraved on the jewelry. Nothing could be more precious than symbolic jewelry and WOW Imports does such a beautiful job creating it, it would be worth every penny spent!
When we were first introduced to Wow Imports, I was pretty excited to be reviewing a piece of jewelry, either a necklace or a ring, with my choice of decorative details on that necklace. I decided then and there to go ahead and choose a necklace that I could personalize for my husband's little sister for Christmas.
The necklace I received is personalized with Jodi's name attached to the chain. It is sterling silver, and I really feel that it is a great quality. The chain is a heavier link, and I was able to choose the length that I thought would fit Jodi; they had lengths between 14"-20". It has a sturdy clasp on it. They also threw in an extra detail to her name, a little flower on the end. I was able to choose the font that her name came in, and I was able to choose from a list of extra details, such as the flower or a pawprint or a star, etc., which could be placed anywhere I chose on the pendant. The necklace I received is priced at $27.95, plus $5.95 for the flower. There are other details that you can also have added, that may cost extra, such as a Swarovski crystal for your birth month, a 3 mm figaro chain, extra thickness to your pendant, etc. One of the best things about Wow Imports is that they offer free shipping, unless you require express shipping. This is a wonderful advantage, especially with the rising prices of everything in these economic times.
Wow Imports is a family business that offers other varieties of personalized jewelry, including personalized name rings, Hebrew wedding rings, children's name necklaces, jewelry from sterling silver or 14K gold, name earrings, name bracelets, name anklets, personalized keychains, personalized zipper pulls, and personalized cufflinks. They also offer African fair trade bead and wire art, including beaded Christmas ornaments; this is a wonderful way to help struggling African artisans trying to support their families. All in all, with my custom-made jewelry experience with Wow Imports, I give them a two thumbs' up.
