Message jewelry has been around for a long time. The Egyptians, Celts and Chinese often carved messages into their jewelry. Some pieces even held secret chambers for hidden missives.
There's nothing that clandestine about contemporary message jewelry. It's fun to wear and definitely very personal. Take, for example, this "Love you more" bracelet I made the other day. There's nothing subtle about that message.
The bracelet is charming and designed with high quality royal blue 7mm lapis lazuli round stones which are interspersed with sterling silver coil spacers and highlighted with a very substantial sterling silver engraved rectangular compoment declaring love. This sweet message bracelet closes with a heavy sterling silver toggle and a small sterling silver heart to punctuate the message. The bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches in length.
