I am a collector, impressed with history!
I'm impressed with history and would like to share my unique personal collection of wax seals with you... by hand casting these antique wax seals into pure silver, sterling silver or bronze.
The wax seal jewelry is hand cast from my personal collection of unique antique wax seals, some in my Medieval wax seal collection dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Each wax seal is a precious little treasure with its own unique symbolism and significance... read about its history and meanings and choose an inspirational wax seal talisman that speaks to you!
Historically, a wax seal was used in correspondence ... the wax seal would securely bond a letter closed, serving as a stamp of authenticity and privacy, verifying to its recipient who the sender was and that the letter had not been tampered with.
So good to have you visit!

Frequently asked questions
Unsure of the size of a wax seal charm? I've included measurements in both inches and millimeters for every charm, as well as included a photo with the charm next to an old US dime, which is the same size as todays dimes.
Many of these wonderful wax seal charms are very small and I'm often asked if I can make them bigger.
I cannot make the wax seal charms larger - the charms can only be the size of the wax seal from which they are stamped in the silver.
Engraving and Personalization
Sorry, but I don't engrave my wax seal charms - I don't have the equipment or the experience to do so.
It's a lovely idea so perhaps your local jeweler can do the engraving for you.
Tracking and Insurance
Packages are shipped with tracking and insurance and most country's postal services can track your package.
If an item is lost in the mail please contact me so that I may file an insurance claim:
after 21 days for domestic packages
after 45 days for an international package
This is etsy's official policy for insurance claims.
The wax seal charms have been oxidized, a process which antiques/ blackens the low areas on the charm, giving it contrast instead of being completely shiny.
If the high areas begin to tarnish and you’d like them shiny again, gently rub a silver polishing cloth over the area to be shined.
This polishing pad works great: ps://www.etsy.com/listing/82422231/silver-polishing-pad-for-wax-seal?
If your ring size is not included in the drop down box of ring sizes I can still make a custom size ring for you.
Simply select "other" from the drop down box and add a note, with your ring size, to your order.
Custom rings are not returnable.
