❤❤Boo! Sweet friends, happy Halloween!❤❤
Have I got a treat for you. A few weeks ago, the folks at Messages in Metal reached out to me asking if they could send me a piece of jewelry of my choosing from their collection in exchange for my review. Have you heard of Messages in Metal? No? I hadn’t either but that’s because they are a brand new online shop, just launching their line of personalized necklaces and dog tags. The Messages in Metal tagline is YOUR WORDS our jewelry. They are able to offer high quality products at affordable prices because everything – the design, creation, packaging and shipping – is all done in house and shipped from Montana to you in a matter of days. Which may be kinda tricky for them but is nothing but pure treat for us!
Messages in Metal Collections
Messages in Metal has something for everyone. Check out their best sellers, here. I was torn between ordering something that represented my Prince and me or a birthstone piece that would represent my daughters and their daughters.
Eeny meeny miny moed then selected the Hearbeat Gold Name Tag Necklace. But had only one concern. Our names are not Sara and David. However, the Messages in Metal folks have that taken care of. That’s where their personalization part of the business comes in. Messages in Metal made a necklace just for me with our very own names! Leslie ❤❤❤ Paul.
Now that I think about it, wouldn’t it have been cute to do Leslie ❤❤❤ Prince Charming? Maybe that can be my next piece.
Let Your Fingers Do the Walking
Going to age myself here, but I remember as a child the Yellow Pages (it was a phone book for businesses for those who are younger than 30) used the slogan “Let Your Fingers Do the Walking”. Meaning we could get information by flipping through or tip-toeing through the phone book rather than walking from store to store for something. This whole Internet thing has made phone books obsolete, though. And I love me some online shopping.
Selecting and ordering my Messages in Metal necklace was as easy as letting my fingers do the walking. Or, as my mom would say, as easy as falling off a log. I ordered my name tag on 09.30, it shipped in 4 days and was on my neck less than a week later. And I have hardly taken it off since.
Take a Look
My necklace was well packaged.
The invoice was neatly packed in a little bubble wrap pouch in the top of the box. The actual little necklace box was nestled in the middle of a cushion of packaging material to keep it from shifting about.
Inside that white box was a velvet jewelry presentation box. Think matryoshka dolls. Those nesting dolls where there’s a smaller doll inside each larger doll. There inside the velvet box was my heartbeat name tag necklace.

Perfect Statement Necklace
In my recent Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone post, I mentioned how uncomfortable I was embracing the big blingy statement necklaces when they were first trending. Didn’t take long for me to realize how fun it was to sparkle! Fast forward a few years, and seems that fashion is returning to understated and effortless pieces, even combinations of several simpler necklaces worn together at differing lengths.
The heartbeat name tag necklace is constructed with 24k gold plated over anti-tarnish .925 sterling silver. Durable and beautiful.
It is protected by a 60 day return policy. But I cannot imagine anyone having to take advantage of that.
And the necklace is adjustable to several lengths, suspended on 20″ of high quality matching chain with a 2″ extension. Making the finished length of chain 20″ – 22″ depending on use of the extension.
Therefore, making it a perfect compliment to every neckline. Even mine.
You might remember, I retired early to have my second cervical spine surgery in 18 months. I have a fairly large scar on the front of my neck even though the vertebrae that were being addressed were in the back. The surgeries left me with what I call a ‘gobbler’ – a whole lot of loose skin to go along with my inherited Rosebrough/Gaugler double chin. I try not to dwell on it but in taking photos to show off my new bling, I also wound up showing off my gobbler. Hope you can look past it to appreciate my Messages in Metal necklace. Wanted to show you the necklace on!
I am so glad that the folks at Messages in Metal found my blog and picked me to review their lovely jewelry. All the way from Montana! As the holidays approach and you are looking for that perfect gift for some of the people you love most, I would invite you to check out Messages in Metal. Let your fingers do the shopping. Right here.
Probably a good thing I didn’t get that birthstone round just yet. Come the end of June there may be a new addition to our family. But if that baby comes late, it could be born in July. Guess I’ll have to wait to see whether I will need a pink amethyst or a red ruby.
Want to leave you with one last set of photos. Tried one more time to take a photo of the necklace on earlier this week. Thought my picture looked pretty good until I realized I had a stain on my shirt in a most conspicuous place.
Thought maybe my felt flower could cover up the stain and refocus attention on my heartbeat name tag necklace. But think it did the opposite.
Please run by Messages in Metal to check out their treats! Hope you’ve had a happy Halloween!
Hugs and kisses,
