Description

The best-selling Jean Jean "Keep calm" Cachet is in French with double-sided images and text as follows:

side 1 ∙ a greyhound running with a letter in its mouth and the phrase, "je suis pressé / I am in a hurry"
side 2 ∙ a cliff in a storm and the phrase, "calm au sein des orages / calm in the middle/worst part of the storm'

On one side, the racing dog acts as courier for an important message. The image symbolizes the pace of life and the relentless effort to juggle responsibilities. And still we run on! The other side honors the courageous, the unflappable, the even-keeled person in your life (or you yourself!): a cliff battered by a tempestuous storm. A reminder to stay composed even with life gets rocky. This would also be a wonderful gift for anyone living a fast-paced yet intentional life or anyone planning a great life event (brides! moms-to-be!).

You may order this charm as a pendant (brass, sterling, 10K, or 14K) or as a handsome signet ring (sterling, 10K or 14K). We would love to add a gemstone stud to your pendant or ring - simply choose from a selection of stones in our drop-down menu.

A few things . . .

If you would like a plain charm or ring, please select "no stone" from the gemstone menu.

Don't see the gemstone or metal option that you love? Want to add a custom engraving? Just ask!

All pendants come with an 18" cable link chain: Sterling, gold fill (to accompany brass) or solid 14K gold. Other styles and lengths readily available upon request.

Ring orders: Please leave us a note at check out with your desired size. It's OK if you forget. We'll follow up with you :)
THE COLLECTION // The Cachet Collection - a captivating range of reversible, antique wax seal jewelry - is my serenade to Victoriana.

The Victorians used wax seals to stamp all of their correspondence and the choice of which seal to use was intensely personal and powerful. The seal was the first thing that the reader would see - a preview to what was written inside. News of a death required a somber seal with a phrase of comfort, a "billet doux" to a lover something tender or playful, and a business contract perhaps just stamped with the day of the week.

With the Cachet Collection, antique wax seals become wearable "objets d'art": small reminders of the big sentiments that rule us all. The messages and images on the seals are timeless, carrying just as much meaning for the modern woman as they did for the Victorians almost two centuries ago. Cast from original ca. 1850s artifacts, hand-finished with love in Michigan, and designed to be worn every day.

This is absolutely my favorite piece of jewelry, and hopefully, will be the first of several cachets. It's beautifully made, and the details are remarkably fine for so small a piece. It's a lovely talisman as well, and I'm wondering if there are plans to make larger ones? Thank you!
