It is such a beautiful cross. It’s different from all my other crosses. It doesn’t sparkle like most of my other ones. Instead, it has an elegance about it. I love wearing it.

Gave this to my Daughter for Christmas. She is currently working on her degree in Linguistics with a specialty in Sign Language. She absolutely loved this gift. The quality of this piece is beyond superb. The original delivery date was January 3rd as I ordered it late to make it here before Christmas. But lo and behold, a Christmas Miracle, a gift from JeanDesigns Jewelry, when the package arrived on Christmas Eve.....Thank You Very Much!!! Have a wonderful New Year!

Beautiful. My SIL is going to be surprised at the ordination next month. Thank you I may have to see if her newly ordained deacon husband would like one.

I originally purchased this gold chai heart plus chain back in 1999 from a Judaica catalog. When the necklace was stolen recently I was heartbroken, as it had great sentimental value and was beautiful as well. The catalog I ordered it from was no longer in business and I couldn’t find another pendant like this. After some google searches I discovered the artists who made my original chai heart pendant here on Etsy and was thrilled. Communication was easy and they were extremely helpful throughout the entire custom ordering process. The jewelry is exquisite and I am so blessed to have this back again. Chai means life and heart, love. Love=Life. My purchase reminds me of this every time I wear it. Also, the chain provided is of excellent quality, not at all skimpy. Thank you Leslie and Jean!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
All of our sterling silver designs are also made in gold by special order. Production time for gold pieces is 3-4 weeks.
We are happy to accomodate customized and personalized orders when feasible.
Most of our designs come in more than one size.
Sizing on wide ring bands is usually a half or full size larger. We suggest you visit your local jeweler for a true sizing.
Our silver jewelry designs are made with Argentium* sterling silver which inhibits oxidation.
To refresh white silver or gold: Use a liquid jewelry cleaner, or soft toothbrush with a tiny dab of verrrry diluted tooth paste. Rinse in cold water and pat dry. To refresh darkened/patinaed sterling: Rub with soft cloth only.
Never use a paste or abrasive jewelry cloth on any textured surfaces as this will damage the finish.
If your piece needs a facelift, let us know before you send it, and we’ll refurbish at no charge. Return S&H is paid by the client.
