This adorable sterling silver charm came from an actual letterpress block! The original idea was the to use the letterpress blocks themselves, just cut the front off and make that the charm. Unfortunately, I found out there was way too much lead in the blocks to make them safe for wear. So instead I've chopped the front off the block, molded it and cast in sterling silver. I wanted to keep the same look as the original, so the silver is blackened and polished to give it that antique look. A special little treat on this 18 inch sterling silver chain - with signature Ruth Avra clasp, of course - is the genuine rough cut black diamond beads!

"&" charm is for sale in this listing, but feel free to custom order any letterpress block you want! Choose a letter that suits you best, the "?" or even the "$" to be the envy of all your friends! Remember, these are letterpress blocks and are technically backwards, but always readable when you look in the mirror! Charms are 5/8 inch tall.

Ruth is amazing! She was able to capture our baby's umbilical cord in spite of the challenges that were thrown at her. Thank you again; we will cherish it forever.
