Our current production time is 1-2 weeks prior to shipping, due to a high volume of orders.
If you are in the US and ordering after the 9th, we recommend upgrading your shipping to increase the possibility of your order arriving before Christmas. You can choose your shipping option at checkout, however we still can't promise your order will arrive by the 24th.
The Stark family of Winterfell has a motto, 'Winter is coming.' It's not so much cheerful as a warning to be prepared. Winters in the Seven Kingdoms can last years, and it's a hard time to live in.
I've stamped this 1.5" wide by 1/4" tall metal tag with 'winter is coming' in our exclusive Westeros font, before it is oxidized and polished to a shiny finish before being strung on a lovely, delicate 16" sterling silver chain with a spring ring clasp.
Choose from copper, brass or sterling silver for the bar.
**Regarding our metals**
-Aluminum is our favorite material for rings and bracelets. It won't turn your skin green, won't oxidize or tarnish, and it loves water. Plus it's so lightweight, you might even forget you're wearing it!
-Copper and Brass will both naturally oxidize as well as react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Nickel silver will not oxidize, however it will react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Sterling silver will naturally oxidize over time.
-14K Gold Filled: Double-clad gold-filled sheet features a 14K yellow gold layer on both sides of a copper core. At least 10% of the metal is 14K gold. We do not darken the letters on gold filled pieces.
-Rose Gold Filled: Our rose gold filled sheet is single clad, meaning one side is clad with gorgeous rose gold, and the base of the metal, including the back, is brass. We do not darken the letters on gold filled pieces.
-Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper can all be polished with any jewelry polishing cloth to restore the beautiful original shine.

Our process is very different from traditional engraving, which carves a light groove into the metal. Stamping is a more forceful technique, where each individual letter, number and symbol is stamped by hand, one at a time with a hammer and steel stamp. Because our products are not machine-made, reasonable variations are to be expected and contribute to the uniqueness
and hand finished quality of each piece.
