Font & Size Guide

  • See our font samples below! Because we offer speciality fonts, descriptions and very detailed info can be found on this page regarding font selection. Our scripted fonts feature beautiful dancing baselines. Some fonts are available in lowercase only, while others are available in both cases. (See chart).  Full descriptions of each font can be found under the chart. Font chart is to scale within the alphabets, but some fonts are enlarged or shown smaller so that we could fit all the letters in this chart. For sizing and measurements of letters and fonts, please read the description of the font you would like to select. 

    Our pieces are not digitally produced, so it is not possible for us to create a proof or sample before ordering. 

    On mobile, touch and drag the image below to view the whole alphabet and scroll past the chart to read the descriptions and measurements for each font, as well as a note about our font selection.  This is how each letter stamps individually. Please be aware of this when selecting hand scripted fonts, particularly with words that start with the letter r.  Handscripted words are “assembled” and stamped individually with letters connected to one another, to create a hand scripted appearance. The chart below shows what each letter looks like. Please take a look at each individual letter for your customization, in particular the letters that your words or names start with.

    About our speciality calligraphy and scripted fonts: Most of our calligraphy and brush or handwritten style fonts have a dancing baselines, meaning that not all the bottoms of the letters will not touch the same plane at the exact same location. If you combine letters with upswings and downswings, there definitely will be a dancing baseline, and it may dance more than if there was not. For example  if there is a p and a d in the name, you may notice that the baseline varies more. Please contact us if you have any questions. In the chart, the letters have been drawn out without a dancing baseline so that we can fit every sample on this chart. STAMPED, there is a slight dancing baseline. This is the style of these fonts. If you prefer something simple, minimalist would be a great choice. 

    Please contact us if you have any questions.  Also, please note that stamping is done by hand and not by a machine so placement, depth may vary ever so slightly. 


    Please note that by default, if numbers are requested, they will be plain as shown on the minimalist font. If numbers are requested in a font not available, minimalist is the default font for numbers. 
    Our products are not digitally produced, but are hand stamped, so it is not possible to create a proof.
    Please note that some fonts come in uppercase/lowercase while others come with only lowercase. If you type in "Mary," and the font is only available in lowercase, we will stamp "mary" on your bar. If it comes in both cases, it will be stamped as "Mary" on your bar. Please note that by default, if numbers are requested, they will be plain as shown on the minimalist font unless otherwise requested.

    Scripted fonts such as the storybook, wanderlust and calligraphy are a designer font, and are not a block font so please understand that it resembles free hand writing or brushed writing with a dancing baseline.
    Because they are designer fonts, they are handcrafted fonts. Please keep that in mind if you select any of our scripted or designer fonts in that every designer font has a style that is unique. Most of them have a dancing baseline. Because of this, some letters in scripted fonts are different than others. For example the letter "r" may include a foot in some fonts but not other fonts. Some fonts may include letters that vary greatly in size. For example, in the wanderlust font, the some letters such as the a, e, r are much smaller than letters like l, h, j. Please contact us prior to purchasing if you need any help with picking a scripted font.

    Each necklace is handmade and handstamped, please allow for variations in position, depth and spacing of letters. This is not a printed necklace, so some variations will occur as a result of being handmade and handstamped, and to ensure that every letter fits on the bar.  Furthermore, every single name will vary as each name has different combinations of words. Please contact us directly here if you have any questions regarding font choices and we would love to assist you!


  • Please note that the above guide is an estimate and will not be the same for every person. If you are unsure, take a piece of non stretchy string, wrap around your neckline. If you are ordering a bar, use your fingers to straighten out where the bar would sit, keeping in mind the bar size that you would like. Cut to where you would like your necklace to sit. Measure the string and viola! You have your desired length. Necklace length is measured from end to end when the necklace is opened. 

    Please note that the below, and the photo above are estimates. This will not be the same for every person as necklace sizing is specific to each person's frame or neck circumference depending on build. Necklace length is measured from end to end when the necklace is opened. 

    16 inches: Falls just a little below the collarbone for a higher fit
    18 inches: Most average and versatile length. Falls a couple inches below collarbone. 
    20 inches: Sits lower on the neckline. 
    22 or more inches: Falls below the neckline. 
    Please note that the above guide is an estimate and will not be the same for every person. 
    For layering more than 1 necklace, we recommend about a 2 inch difference between necklaces. 16 and 18 inches are our most common layering lengths.
    Please note that depending on your size and neck circumference, each length may sit differently. 
    If you are unsure, take a piece of non stretchy string and cut to where you would like your necklace. Straighten out where the bar may sit if you are measuring FITB a bar necklace. This takes into the account how the bar lays against your desired location. Measure the string and viola! You have your desired length. 
    Most necklaces come at about 18 inches, but you can choose your length in the drop down menu.

    LAYERING SETS:
    ♡ We recommend at least 2 inches of a difference between layering sets. 
    ♡ To estimate how long each necklace needs to be for each set, use the string method described above. Make sure you account for the size of the bar or pendant when doing so. For example, if you are layering a luxe bar, straighten out the string where the bar would sit at approximately where it 
    would sit horizontally to account for the size of the luxe bar, which is 1.75 inches. Or, if you are measuring for a pendant that hangs (for example, the heart or disc), pull the string down to estimate where the pendant would end up sitting. 
    ♡ Each person's frame and shape is different, so it's important to estimate using string or an existing necklace. We recommend using an existing necklace or string that has somewhat of a weight to it, so that it will hang as you measure. 
    ♡ Each necklace sits differently at each length, and length is measured from end to end when the necklace is opened. 
  • Petite Bars- 1 inch long, accommodates one name or one date.
    Standard Bars- 1.5 inches long
    LUXE Bars- 1.75 inches long. 

     

    WORD FIT ON BARS:
    ♡ Our Petite bars only fit ONE name or date. (Roman numerals will NOT fit)
    ♡ Standard bars will fit 2, possibly 3 names. 
    ♡ Luxe Grande will fit 3 names, possibly more. 

    ♡ This is an approximate guide, if you are using a smaller font more words can possibly fit on the standard bar.
    ♡ Please note that each bar is cut by hand and measurements may vary ever so slightly. 
    ♡ Please contact us if you have any questions at all and we can help you design a piece that's perfect for you!

     

    *For bars with 4 + names, we can fit them! Please contact us to design a piece!
