Britta Ambauen's handmade locket is a wearable tribute to the nurturing power of motherhood. Composed of two sterling silver hemispheres, the locket slides open to reveal the inscription "from deepest roots, tallest branches grow." The front is carved with an elegant "tree of life" motif representing a mother's expansive, embracing devotion to her kin. The tree protects up to four birthstones representing the children or grandchildren that grow from your family tree. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.

Beautiful but not exactly what I expected


The design is wonderful. It is exactly what I expected with the exception of the birth stone. It appears to be a piece of dull plastic that does not luster much at all. I am not sure that more shiny piece of plastic would be better though either. I was under the impression I would be receiving a real stone of some sort. For the price I knew it wouldn't be a real ruby. But you may want to consider a different material for the stone (if possible). Overall it is beautiful from a distance. Up close the tree design is wonderful. But the "ruby" leave much to be desired.

A nice sentiment to honor mom's efforts!

Wonderful necklace


It has the perfect message and is the perfect vehicle for what I wanted to express.



Beautiful Necklace


My daughter will wear this and love the meaning it represents. She is facing the world as a single mother raising two boys. Her definition of family has changed.



Beautiful necklace


Mom loves that this is different than any other she has seen. The quality is great & it isn't so big, but it does show up.

Beautiful necklace and good quality. Very meaningful mother's day gift with the bithth stones of each grandchild.



Good Quality


I liked the idea of this for my mom. She is older and difficult to buy for. I decided to include stones for her to children and spouses, total of four stones. The quality of the charm and chain is good. Four charms look like all that will fit and still have the top lay nicely on top. My mom is heavy set so I am not sure the length of the chain will work. Not all the monthly stones are clear. The solid ones are not nearly as attractive. In my case July (ruby) was solid and December. For the price paid, it would have been nice to have them all clear colors.
