As an office-family we purchased this necklace as a bereavement gift for one of our "family" whose husband passed away. Our colleague collects sand from every beach she and her husband visited. We thought your necklace was the perfect find. The last vacation she was able to take with her husband before he died was to Maui.

Length of the chain was included in the description of this item. Omission of the size of the pendant mislead me as I thought the image was representative of the final product, which is not. Pendant is roughly 1/3 smaller than the brochure image, VERY small, about 1/4"x3/4", appropriate for a child.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Beach Heart Necklace:

    I actually bought two, one for my daughter and one for my daughter-in-law. My daughter is a Navy pilot in Hawaii, and my daughter-in-law is a Navy wife, who was stationed in Hawaii with my son for 9.5 years. I gathered sand from Lanikai Beach, one of their favorites, so I hope they will cherish them as keepsakes from a time when they were living in the same place and from a place they loved on the islands!

        This was a custom made item, filled with sand from a beach of your choice.

        The shape of the heart is better looking in person and has a really nice shape. It's not just a simple heart shape.

        I thought the heart was like a glass case that was filled but it looks like the sand is placed in the heart and covered with something clear. Looks great!

            This was THE MOST perfect gift for my sister. We spent all of our summers at this NJ beach at our summer home which we recently had to sell after our mother's death. This heart shaped necklace that contains actual sand from this beach could not be a more perfect symbol of our wonderful times of our childhood summers with our parents. It is so clever and unique and a perfect gift for so many occasions. It is well made and a perfect size. My sister loved it.

                The sand in the heart is perfect! We purchased Destin, FL sand and have collected sand from the beach for Christmas ornaments and other crafts in the past. The sand is sugar white, but has flecks of black and seashell gray. The sand in the heart necklace is a perfect match.

                    Beautiful design, wonderful memory from a favorite beach. I think it will be a conversation piece too. It is a bit on the small side, but my husband knew that from the description (and it's fine for me - not too small). However, the chain was much shorter than he was expecting, so I will have to buy another chain. A photo on a model or mannequin would be very helpful, as it's difficult to picture with just the length in inches. I think that he thought it would hang 18".

                    Another plus is that there were many beaches to choose from. Overall, I love it and can't wait until I can find a long enough chain to wear it!

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    He ordered it just before our anniversary, and delivery took about a month, so it was late for that. But it was shipped in the time-frame that was promised. So lesson is plan ahead if you want to give this as a gift. Came in a nice box, with info on where the sand was from and the artist's name.
