I never know what to get my husband because he buys whats he wants and when I saw this I wanted to commemorate where we fell in love 33yrs. ago and that was in the rotunda at the Palace of Fine Arts in S.F. . He doesn't wear chain or cufflinks
so I knew the key chain would be used daily and he
would smile whenever he looked at it.
The artist was so easy to work with and what a imaginative way to remember a special date or place. The construction of the piece is very sturdy and the brass backing will develope that
beautiful patina. When I gave it to my squeeze for Valentines Day it brought tears to his eyes and I knew it was the perfect gift. It would also be a great gift for parents or anyone you hold special in your heart

This is a high-quality key ring, and the sentimental idea of a map image of a special place was well-received. My husband worries that the resin face of the key ring may get scratched given daily rough-and-tumble use; we'll see. The map image isn't quite as crisp as I'd like, but it's OK. Overall, this is a nice item but I think it is overpriced. In the end, it's a key ring - a costly one. Last but important note: Uncommon Goods made a mistake and never sent me a proof to review. After several days, I caught this mistake, called them, they apologized and quickly set it in motion, and luckily it arrived just in time for Christmas. But had I not been paying close attention, it could have gotten completely lost in the shuffle. The customer service folks were friendly and helpful in making sure it was set in motion after I called - I appreciate that.

          The key chain is perfect... I just would have liked the printing of my favorite location to be darker &/or larger... this was a difficult thing to confirm on the preview which I approved...

                  This was a gift for my husband, our 21st wedding anniversary. I had the address of our wedding reception as this location became one of our favorite special occasion spots. This gift far surpassed my expectations, it is simply beautiful! I can't wait to give it to my wonderful husband.

                      I purchased this as an anniversary gift for my husband. I picked a map of the beach where we were married. Usually, he's not one for key ring bling but he really loved the map. I enjoyed how easy it was to customize! I sent in the address, I was sent a proof, I asked for one tweak and they nailed it! This is such a fun item.

                          The customized key ring looked exactly as the prototype sent to me. It was a very easy process to specify a map, review the initial electronic version, and then get the final product.

                          It may be a bit bulky to use as an everyday key ring but it's great for occasional use or just decorative.
