I purchased two necklaces of the circle 'send your sand'. I took a video of my daughter scooping sand into a baggie at a beach in Sanibel, FL that my family visits annually. I had one made for my mother's 65th birthday and one for myself. I can see small pieces of seashells along with the sand, which I enjoy. I wear it daily and it is very comfortable. I wasn't sure how they would look because the sand we'd gathered was a little coarse, but it turned out very nicely. The color of the majority of the circle looks like wet sand, so if you're looking for the true color it might not work as you like.

Looks nothing like my beach's sand

I've seen a few reviewers post about the difference in color, but I wasn't prepared for the discrepancy. I have walked every foot of the shore in Avalon NJ, and none of it has black sand beaches. This was how the pair of earrings turned out; very, very dark. More than what could account for a different part of the beach, or the sand being wet. Like the other reviewer, giving this to my mother as intended is meaningless, as it looks nothing like the beaches she loves. Hopefully, they'll let me return it, despite the policy.

    My mother had to move last year away from the coast but misses the beach terribly so I purchased this necklace for her as a little reminder and token of her favorite Place.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Beach Necklaces:

      Was looking for something unique and unusual for my wife's birthday and Valentines Day. I found this pendant and started browsing through the list of beaches. To my surprise, I found the beach my wife and I had vacationed at every year for 12 or so years. I ordered, and gave it to her for a late birthday and valentines gift. She loves it and has not taken it off since i gave it to her. It's a little reminder of all the good times we had at that beach. I hit a home run with this one!!

        We have shared this favorite beach together as best friends and I wanted to give her a special keepsake. She loves the necklace. I also purchased the sand cuff links for my husband-to-be. He loves them too!

                The color of the sand in the pendant wasn't remotely close to the actual sand color of the beach it was supposedly from. It looked like the dirt in my yard, 65 miles from the beach. I was offered the chance to replace the pendant with the "correct" colored sand, but I had to find a good picture online, then send it along. Why couldn't the company do that instead of me? And there was no guarantee the replacement pendant would be better. My daughter, who gave me the necklace, was embarrassed that the sand looked like dirty sand and not the pretty, light sand that's actually at the beach we went to for 20 yrs. I only wear it when I see her. Maybe in future we'll laugh about it, but not now.
