Tips and Ideas for Ordering


WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY?

The first thing to do is to decide on what you want to have on your Luxe jewelry. Most people start with an inspirational saying or personal affirmation, children’s or pets’ names, or a special date. Then, count out how many characters, (including spaces) that you will need. This determines which customizable charm you can choose.

GET SOME INSPIRATION.

Take a browse through all of our charms and beads, and check out the Blog. The blog shows some of our coolest celebrity commissions, tons of our customers’ awesome designs, and shots of the jewelry on a mannequin. There is a lot of inspiration for you, and ideas of how the pieces look in various combinations.

Check out our IDEAS and INSPIRATION link. We have put together sayings about friendship, love, sisters, mothers, adoption, twins, you name it. There are affirmations, proverbs and single words that we recommend for specific charms. You can choose from these, or, of course, make up one of your own.

TOO MUCH INFORMATION!

There are so many things to choose from, and so many ways to put them together. Some people absolutely adore being able to have so much freedom and control when designing their pieces, and others are totally overwhelmed. If you are in the second category, let us suggest this:

RPN10-18 – 18” Sterling Silver Curb Chain.

It is our best selling, fits everyone, most popular, best length, totally wearable chain.

RCH-243 – Sterling Silver Customizable Open Circle.

Our bestselling charm, hands down. Choose FOLLOW YOUR HEART in Large Font. That pretty much covers it.

RCH-14 –Sterling Silver Mini Double Heart.

We can’t even count how many of these we have sold.

RSBD-TQ – Small Sterling Silver & Turquoise Quartz gemstone bead.

Don’t worry about what it means, its pretty. It’s our most loved (and purchased) color. If you are getting this for someone else, but you are worried that (s)he won’t like the color of her birthstone, don’t get it. Get something pretty she wants to wear.

OK, this is just a suggestion. We know you are going to change everything now!

CAN YOU JUST DO IT FOR ME?

We always choose the best layout for the personalization, and for the layout of the charms. If you want more help, just call us.

SPECIAL DESIGN DETAILS:

ADDING SOMETHING TO THE MIDDLE OF AN OPEN CHARM:

If you want to add an item to the middle of a charm, simply use the 'OPTIONS' box to specify which charm you would like it to be added to. For example, if you want it added to the middle of a Customizable Open Oval, in the 'OPTIONS' box you would type: "add to middle of RCH-220". NOTE - the 'OPTIONS' box is available only on certain appropriate items.

ORDERING TWO OR MORE COMPLETE PIECES:

If you are ordering more than one necklace or bracelet, please use the 'Additional Comments' box to let us know which chain or bracelet you would like it to go on. For example, you could name your first item "Necklace 1" and for each chain, charm, bead, etc. that goes one "Necklace 1", simply type "Necklace 1" in each item's 'Additional Comments' box.

ADDING ITEMS IN A PARTICULAR ORDER:

If you want the charms to show up in a particular order, you can also enter that in 'Additional Comments'. However, we will always do the best layout for you, so this is unnecessary. If do want them in a specific order, please picture the item as though you were looking at it, and as though you were adding the charms from left to right. Count the number of charms, let's say you have 7 and they are going on a necklace. From left to right they would be " Left 1", "Left 2", "Left 3", "Middle", "Right 1", "Right 2", "Right 3".

Here is a video about balancing your charms visually on a charm bracelet:



PUTTING TWO ITEMS ON THE SAME RING:

If you are designing a simple necklace with a large charm and a single bead for example, you might want both items to hang from the same jump ring. This way the bead will always be in the front / top / middle of the charm. Just use the 'Additional Comments' box for the smaller item and say "Please hang this from the same ring as RCH-303", (or whatever charm you are ordering). We don’ recommend any more than 2 items be hung from the same jumpring.

CUSTOMIZATION AND LAYOUTS:

DOTS

We highly reccomend that you use dots to separate your names or single words, and at the beginning of a phrase. Please enter a period where you would like a dot to appear. Dots will be centred horizontally and vertically, unless otherwise specified.

FONTS
We have a Large Font and a Small Font. In both fonts, letters are only available in uppercase. In the Large Font we also have numbers 0 through 9, an ampersand (&), and a dot/period. In the smal font we DON"T have small numbers or the ampersand, but we do have a dot/period. For both fonts we don't have commas or any other puntuation. We can use the small font letter 'I' to make commas, accents, dashes, and apostrophes in words in Large Font, but we don't recommend it in the small font.

LAYOUTS

Many of our customizable charms have layout options you can select directly from the product page. If you don't see a layout that is suitable, you can enter any specific instructions in the additional comments box. You may also use this box for any other comments that you have. Using the points on a clock is a helpful way to describe your layout.
