A Pendant Next To Your Heart

Etched In Memories specialises in jewellery with customised messages, so you can wear or give someone a one-of-a-kind piece that speaks directly from your heart. The pendants themselves are made of fine quality metals, and, once engraved, will hold the precious words next to the wearer’s heart for years to come. One of the premier joys of being a co-creator in custom jewellery is the luxury of choice. As well as choosing the metal that will suit the wearer best, there are a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses of pendant to choose from, each of which are suitable for carrying different types of messages.

Stainless steel pendants are the most economical of the range, and are a strong, bright option for casual gifts. Sterling silver is somewhat similar in appearance to stainless steel, but unlike stainless steel contains a high percentage of silver, a precious metal. Etched In Memories also carries a selection of pendants in gold. These range from the gold plated, through to 9ct white and yellow gold options. Gold plated jewellery is quite affordable, being a thin layer of gold covering a strong base metal. 9ct yellow and white gold are both very precious and beautiful options which people treasure for years and have heirloom potential.

The range of pendant shapes available ensures there is something to suit men and women of all ages, and great options for all occasions. The classic heart shaped pendants are well suited to displaying wedding anniversaries, for instance, or children’s names. Attractively rounded circles and ovals are sometimes preferred by women. Square pendants can appear quite modern, and along with rectangles and ID tag shapes can carry very personal and sentimental messages and still be suitable for men to wear.

This is only a simple guide, however. When choosing the pendant you would like, remember the human heart has few rules. Have a look through the Etched In Memories selection, and see what speaks to you.

Cufflinks For Your Men

Cufflinks are an elegant gift for men and recently, they have started to become popular again.  It’s as though they have been rediscovered.

I have always thought that cufflinks add a touch of class to a man’s styling and I enjoy seeing that flash of gold or silver on his shirt cuff.

Cufflinks are the decorative way to fasten a shirt cuff but they are only suitable for shirts which have buttonholes on both sides of the sleeve and no buttons.  They can’t be worn with standard shirts because they only have the buttonhole on one side.

There is a decorative side to a cufflink and a closure stud.  The decorative side can be plain metal but often it is decorated with stones or other images.  Ours have flat clean surfaces ready to hold the memories you have chosen.

Our rhodium cufflinks are available in oval or square shapes and we have selected these because the plates give ample room to add a clear etched image on top.  You can have a different image or text on each plate, too. The cufflinks come giftboxed and also include free regular postage Australia wide.

If your man has never worn cufflinks before he might be a little unsure about how to wear them.  This short video clip will show him exactly how to add them to his cuff and how to make sure they look fantastic.

Gifts For Your Clients

Sometimes purchasing gifts for your clients can be difficult.  Pick a hamper, you are just never sure whether you they like what you have purchased.  Pens, mugs, mouse pads – well you can definitely have too many of those.

Have you considered getting a logo or a business name etched onto a pendant for your client?  A gift like this would last for years to come and would serve as a reminder of your generosity.  They could carry it with them wherever they go as a key ring for example.

But we can do more than this!  Did you know that we offer an engraving only service in which we can engrave on such items as zippo lighters, watches and business card holders just to name a few.  Suitable items need to be perfectly flat, no thicker than 20mm and no wider than 80x80mm.  If you have something in mind that you would to personalise in particular for one of your special clients, don’t hesitate to ask.

Christmas is a time of year in which you can really make an impression on one of your special clients, and going over and above the usual corporate purchase will really ensure that your gift does not go unnoticed.

Feel free to contact us (http://etchedinmemories.com.au/contact_us.php) with your customisation request and we will do our utmost to help you create something memorable for your corporate clients.

Very apt don’t you think?

Get Your Christmas Orders In

With only seven weeks to go until Christmas, now is definitely the time to start thinking about shopping for your ideal Christmas gifts. While most items in our store can be created and sent within a week from the order date, please ensure you allow at least 14 days to receive your order, or longer, if you take into account the Christmas postal rush. You can of course opt for Express Post shipping if you think you are cutting it fine.

Author Peg Bracken stated “gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas” and a personalised gift wraps both time and love into a thoughtful Christmas package. Memories stand still and can be perfectly captured in a pendant or a pair of cufflinks showing just how much you truly care.

Browse your photographs: select an old memory or a favourite image captured throughout the year or better still, get snapping so you have a current and up to date image to display.

All of our pendants come with free gift-wrapping, cleaning cloth and also free standard postage Australia-wide. And we promise to treat your memories with care!

Christmas is a busy time for many families and individuals and often the lack of time can mean a last minute visit to the shops in which you select the first thing you see on the shelf to avoid the Christmas rush. You don’t need New Year to make a change when it comes to your bad shopping habits – shop early, select carefully and make sure you give a gift that the recipient will be proud to wear.
