Moon Phase Bar DAINTY |CUSTOM| ♡ BC OR LOCAL ORDERS ONLY

♡ SEE FONT CHART & SIZE GUIDE HERE ♡
  • It is said that the moon is a feminine symbol. But by no means does it hint at delicacy or weakness. The moon directly affects the tide here on earth. The moon is a beautiful and so full of mystery! This is an exclusive Mint & Birch design- it cannot be found anywhere else! 

    To order,

    1. Select the number of moons you need on your bar. If you'd like a smaller bar with the moons, you can use this listing here. The bar will be standard size. Please also use drop down menu to select how you want the moons to be stamped- left, right or centre of the bar (for reference the vantage point is looking at the bar). (Aligned right would be closest to the right of the bar, left would be stamped on the left side of the bar).

    2. At notes, please let me know which dates you want to match the phases of the moon to. Please, indicate this with the name of the month (not in numerical form). Ie: January 3, 2012. (Otherwise we will assume MM/DD/YY). You MUST also indicate the time zone. Please also indicate what location you would like corresponded to each date as the moon looks different from the Northern hemisphere than the Southern hemisphere. If you already know the moon phase, you can just simply let us know by using the customization notes. If you would rather let us know exactly which phase you’d like, please leave the name of the phase you’d like. Please only leave a phase OR a date. If you leave a phase AND a date, we will go by the phase and not the date. This is because we have shown the phase in the last reference photo and we want to go by the chart that is shown so you know what your moon will look like. (Also because sometimes different phases may be used to look like specific phases of the moon if it is close to a new phase- for example, a bigger gibbous may look like a full moon and some prefer to use that. Phases of the moon are on a continuum when we see them in the sky). 

      We do not translate postal codes/zip codes.  If this is not noted at checkout, I will match the location to the city or country that it is being shipped to. Moon phases will be stamped in the order they are received, from left to right, looking at the necklace. If you'd like a specific moon to show first, please enter that date in first and so forth! :) I will look up the phase of the moon that corresponds to your date and stamp it on your necklace. 

      Please enter the correct dates. We will match the date exactly as indicated. 

      All the phases of the moon for this design is shown in the images with a label. The New moon is like the full moon, but more filled in. 

    WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT OUR BAR NECKLACES? 

     Each Mint & Birch bar necklace is cut by hand in our studio. Each one starts out as a large sheet of extra thick, premium, high quality, 14 karat gold fill or solid sterling silver ethically sourced from reputable mills in North America and is stamped using hand tools. Each Mint & Birch piece is finished and polished in our studio using professional tools and materials. We promise that our necklaces are worth the price!

    Here at Mint & Birch, we only use ethically sourced, certified gold fill and solid sterling silver sourced from North American mills. Gold fill jewelry must contain a certain percentage of gold in order to be able to be legally called gold fill. This percentage is based on the weight of the piece. We use extra thick and heavy bars for your necklaces so that the weight and amount of real gold that you are getting per necklace is higher. We create our bars out of thicker than average sheets of high quality gold fill or sterling sheets sourced from North American mills. This ensures a luxurious, long lasting piece that you can treasure for years to come.

    We do NOT use gold plated materials, but instead, we use gold fill and solid sterling silver. Gold fill is much more superior to gold plated, and is made by bonding layers of real gold into a base core. Gold plated, which we do NOT use, is simply a microscopic dip into metallic colouring or gold alloy, which is often not real gold, or cannot be certified as real gold because gold plated items are usually sourced overseas. Often, gold plated materials simply refers to the metallic colour in which it has been dipped in, and as such,  especially without certification, could contain heavy toxic metals such as cadmium or lead. Mint & Birch does NOT sell gold plated items. Our pieces are free of cadmium, lead and nickel and do not contain any toxic metals. We use only gold fill or solid sterling silver, as we strive to source the best raw materials in the industry! Our gold fill raw materials are ethically sourced from mills within North America, and we only buy raw materials that can be certified as containing real 14 karat gold, safe to wear, free of toxic metals and ethically sourced

    Most importantly, the magic is the process in which we make our bars. We do not use a tumbler, in which many, many pieces can be polished and rough edges removed with little effort by putting multiple pendants into a rotating canister with small steel parts or abrasive compounds such as silicone carbide grit, or ceramic. Tumbling does not always remove all of the rough edges, but simply smoothes them down. Furthermore, tumbling can cause micro scratches and wear down the gold in gold filled pieces, leading to tarnish. We do NOT do this. Instead, we meticulously use hand tools to individually finish each bar. Using hand tools allows us to have a greater degree of control and precision over the piece to ensure that edges are beautifully smooth and that no damage occurs when finishing the piece into shiny necklaces! We have created a unique process of finishing your pieces without a tumbler, but with multiple hand tools, ensuring that quality is delivered. We believe in good old-fashioned hard work done with elbow and grease! Your bar necklace will not flake or tarnish as each one is treated with care individually and not mass manufactured.

    The combination of high quality materials we work hard to source, and our unique process of finishing the bars results in necklaces that will last for years to come. We strive to deliver the very best! Mint & Birch also works hard to create unique designs to hand stamp your necklaces with. In fact, some of our designs are even created specifically for us and cannot be found elsewhere!
