"Mo Anam Cara" - Irish / Gaelic Hand stamped Sterling Silver or Gold Filled Necklace
This 1/2" sterling silver disc is cut in our shop from sturdy sterling silver or gold-filled sheet and hand stamped with the Gaelic phrase "mo anam cara" which translates to "my soulmate" or "soul friend". It is tumbled for strength and then the impressions are darkened, the piece is polished by hand and given a lightly brushed / matte finish which we feel will help your piece looking its best the longest. It is available as a standalone charm or with your choice of 16", 18" or 20" chain.
- If the silver option is chosen, all pieces will be sterling silver. If the gold option is chosen, all pieces will be gold-filled. Note: Gold filled should not be confused with "gold plated". Gold-filled is constructed in three layers. The core metal is jewelers’ brass. A gold alloy is then bonded to one or both surfaces of the brass core with heat and pressure. Unlike plated (aka electroplated or "dipped") metals, Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is then described by the karatage of the gold alloy. Our Gold-filled items are 14kt gold-filled. 14k Gold Fill (14K GF) has ± 100x more gold than a gold plated item.
- Birthstones and additional charms can be added in our add-ons section to make this item your own.
- Your gift will be shipped ready to give - tastefully carded and tucked into a reusable fabric pouch.
- Due to the handmade nature of these items, they will not have machine-made “perfection”. EACH design and letter is individually hammered, one strike at a time, BY HAND. This may lead to some variations in the spacing, depth of the designs and placement of the letters. This is not to be considered a defect, but instead a part of the unique character of the piece.
- All items are shipped via USPS First-Class Mail unless a shipping upgrade is chosen to add faster options. During high volume periods (around major gift-giving holidays), we ALWAYS recommend that you use PRIORITY shipping for a few dollars more. Priority mail is processed more quickly than First Class (typically delivered in 3 days or less) and includes insurance to cover your purchase from loss or damage during transit.
- RUSH guarantees that your item will ship the next BUSINESS day if ordered before 4 PM CST (or the same day, if possible).
- GREEN THINKING: Whenever possible, we source our supplies from other small domestic businesses and recycle/reuse packaging materials to help reduce our environmental impact. Our precious metals are refined at a location that is environmentally and energy responsible. We recycle all acceptable waste/scrap metal to reduce our landfill footprint. Our standard packaging is completely recyclable other than the fabric pouch, which is reusable.
