Putting Your Eggs In One Locket

Whether your little ones are right down the hall or have just flown the nest, you'll always keep them close. Artist Trudy James sends this sentimental message home in her beautifully handmade necklace. Like a mother's wing, the sterling silver dome on each locket protects up to four Amazonite inside--one for each of your own little birds. A warm, textured copper interior cradles the precious eggs, while a hand-stamped bird silhouette completes the motherly display. Handmade in San Diego.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

    Very nice item. The pendant is small, so it is unobtrusive. The workmanship is very unique, so it will probably be the only one people will ever see (unlike the common ones from Tiffany etc.).
    If you are looking for a large, flashy necklace, this is not the one for you.

    Perfect Mother's Day Gift!

    By 

    from Stevens Point, WI

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

    This was exactly what my wife had been asking for! After searching the internet, this was my favorite bird/nest/eggs necklace. It is a very tasteful piece of jewelry that has a lot of meaning for her as we have one son and a daughter on the way. It is not too big and very subtle (a bit smaller than what I was expecting from the picture). I highly recommend this product to anyone searching for the perfect Mother's Day gift!

    Tarnishes

    By 

    from Sonoma, CA

    Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

    The necklace is a great design, except it tarnishes so quickly. The description says "Copper develops a warm, deep patina over time, but if you choose, brush the copper and silver discs lightly with a light stroke of this pad to maintain the original satin look." well, I would not describe that as a "warm deep patina" it's simply black and it's not the copper that is the issue, it's the silver on top. I doubt this is even really sterling silver or if it is, it must be mixed with other metals as I've never seen sterling silver tarnish like this. once it's brushed it is OK for a week or so, but then turns black again. I'm afraid if I keep brushing it then eventually the metal will just completely wear down, but you cannot see the bird at all when it is tarnished the way it is.

    Very cute. 4 eggs is a tight fit. Abrasion pad is in clued but makes your fingers dirty. Other than that, I'm sure mom will love it.
