I am excited to get this engraved and give it to my husband on our 5 year wedding anniversary. I ordered the keychain, one for each of us from Sandals Ocho Rios where we were married. I hope he enjoys this and it helps him remember our special wedding day.

The key chain is nice, but honestly..did not think it was anything special. The "sand" was dark brown, not at all like the beach sand from Kiawah we know. I was disappointed in the dark look. I don't know what is so custom about this purchase as it does not look like what I expected or the picture on the website. I expected to be able to see the grains of sand in the keychain, and it just looks like a brown blob.

It broke after 2 weeks

Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Beach Keychain:

I bought this key chain with sand from the Green Sand Beach on the Big Island. My husband and I love Hawaii and visit several times a year and we had done the 2 mile hike out to the Green Sand Beach several months before Christmas so I wanted to commemorate our hike with this piece. Unfortunately it broke within 2 weeks of him having it and it's been sitting in my jewelry box ever since.

Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Beach Keychain:

I bought this for my husband for our 40th anniversary because we have been to Maui many times during our marriage. He appreciates it because daily he can be reminded of our very fond memories on that beach! Thank you for supplying me the opportunity to give him a unique gift.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Beach Keychain:

    This gift has a sentimental value that can be used everyday by a guy that's not into jewelry. This sand was where my parents met and their story has always been a fun recollection every time we get together. Now I tell the story to my kids. Fabulous idea of a gift for the men on our life that don't wear jewelry.

        The sand is wet - therefore, VERY dark. My key ring did not look like sand at all.

                The keychain was perfect. The sand was obviously from the beach I selected. It was the perfect gift for my homesick friend and now he can take a little bit of home with him wherever he goes.

                Service and delivery comments:

                It was a lengthy wait, which I expected since it was a custom item.
