CUSTOM VINTAGE stamped date bar

  • A twist on our traditional hammered date bars. These date bars are stamped with a genuine vintage stamp set that are at least 50 years old. The markings, stamps, and sticker on this stamp set indicate that they are from Canada, and manufactured in the US. One of the markings on the box indicates that they belonged to a furniture store owner, and these stamps were probably used to mark furniture. They are at least 50 years old and are from Port Credit and Dundas Ontario. How neat would it be to have your necklace stamped with this stamp set!

Each bar is cut from brass, hand-stamped, letters darkened, and adorns a dainty brass chain. Please continue to read to see how to order one of your own, and for more information about this necklace!


      IMPORTANT: The font that is displayed under this listing is the one that you will receive. Please do NOT request a different font in the notes. Due to high order volume, we cannot process those requests as we process and stamp orders based on the item that was added in the carts.  If you are having trouble finding a listing for a particular font, please contact us here and we usually respond quite quickly with a link to the listing that you may be looking for. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that the listing that they add to their cart is the font that they would like. 

      Unless otherwise stated, your choice of word(s) will be approximately centred on the bar. Please do not request special symbols such as accents. We can stamp hearts. If you have a particular request, please contact us directly here. Please note that certain fonts are only available in lowercase, unless otherwise stated. (See the title of this listing to check!) If you note "Mary" in the notes for fonts that are available in both upper/lowercase, we will stamp "Mary" on the bar, or if you type in "MARY" in the notes, we will stamp "MARY." However, if you purchase a listing that is available in lowercase only, we will stamp lowercase regardless of what your note indicates.  Please check the name of the listing double check, and contact us if you have any questions.

       

      Dimensions of the chain and the bar:
      The chain will be approximately 18 inches long, give or take. Longer words/phrases requested will be stamped on bars approximately 26mm long, and shorter words/phrases will be stamped on bars approximately 21mm. We will ensure that it suits the word/phrase that you would like stamped. If you have a preference, please indicate this at check out, otherwise we will use our discretion to decide which size to use. Bars are VERY dainty, at no longer than 26mm. Please note that because it is quite dainty, the bar may flip when worn, but it is very easy to flick it back into place with the tap of a finger without taking the necklace off. This means that the text on our necklaces is very small. Most of the photos of our necklaces do not have any size reference, so that is why we are stating again here that they are very dainty. This means that the words are also very dainty and small. To see them worn, please visit our social media pages for different types of photos. Please do not purchase if you do not like small, dainty jewellery. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that they understand that this necklace is very dainty before purchasing and to read all the descriptions of each listing.

      If you need a different length, please see the "change length of necklace" tab. Custom chain length requests will NOT be fulfilled unless this is added to your order. Do NOT leave custom chain length requests in the notes unless you have spoken to us directly through email. 

      Chain Information// {If applicable, please select chain option at drop down menu} The antiqued brass chain is made out of brass and has an antique patina look to it. The raw brass chain is unfinished, un-plated raw brass. Due to the nature of brass, the raw brass chain will tastefully and beautifully darken and patina over time. (But can still be polished back up easily with a polish pad included). These brass chains are very lovely: very dainty, yet very strong. Please see the last few photos for reference. If no selection is made, your necklace may come in either chain finishes. 

      About brass: Due to the nature of brass, and as a feature of this product, this bar necklace will patina tastefully and beautifully into a warm, darker brass to add to the rustic, vintage look. Just like sterling silver, brass is a material that oxidizes but will form a beautiful patina. We do not use plated brass for this reason as we feel the patina is quite tasteful. In fact, plated jewellery will not last as long because once the plating wears off, the piece cannot be polished again. Brass, however, is un-plated so it can be polished back to a shiny lustre! You can use the polishing pad that is included! You can also clean it with a mixture of lemon and baking soda, or even with some ketchup! Brass contains a small amount of copper in it. Our necklaces do not normally irritate or cause any reaction as brass is made out of a safe, hypoallergenic material. The copper is added to create the warmth and look of gold. Please be aware of this before purchasing, if you have known reactions to copper, we highly recommend choosing either the antiqued chain, which has less copper in it, or pick from one of our gold filled or sterling necklaces here. Please see our shop policies here. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that they understand that this necklace is made out of brass as noted in this listing several times prior to purchasing. 

      Occasionally, the bar will flip because of how dainty it is. This piece is meant to be a lightweight, delicate piece so it is normal and is not a flaw. It can be flipped back the right way without taking the necklace off.To ensure that your necklace is not upside down when put on, please put on with the clasp on the right hand side. Please note that these necklaces are very dainty and small, at about 22-26mm by 4mm. This means that the text on our necklaces is very small. Most of the photos of our necklaces do not have any size reference, so that is why we are stating again here that they are very dainty. This means that the words are also very dainty and small. To see them worn, please visit our social media pages for different types of photos. Please do not purchase if you do not like small, dainty jewellery. 

      Please note that due to the handmade nature of this product, the letters may not be uniformly straight, and that this is a handmade product. It is not mass manufactured by a machine, down to the chain we cut- everything is done by hand and not by a precision machine that mass manufactures necklaces and due to the softness of the brass, the bar may not be perfectly straight after the letters are stamped on. We do promise it will look beautiful! As always, each order is packaged with care and attention to detail, ready to gift to someone, or as a treat to yourself! We promise you'll enjoy unwrapping this pretty package to find a very cute and classy necklace!  Please note that you are purchasing a handmade product. Letter placement will vary slightly and will not be exactly as shown. We stamp each letter individually, so each necklace will vary slightly. We do not purchase  mass produced charms, attach them to a chain and call it "handmade." Instead, we pride ourselves in stamping each letter on each bar by hand, one by one. If you are not happy with any variance, please reconsider purchasing handmade. Thank you!

      Please ensure you read the full listing description prior to purchasing to be aware of dimensions. As always, due to monitor differences, colour shown on your screen may vary. If you have any questions at all about your purchase, please contact us here.
