Stamp of Approval

Handmade from vintage and antique stamps that have traveled all over the world, these unique necklaces add a subtle touch of color and bring a wonderful bit of history to the modern wardrobe. Delicate, detailed illustrations are magnified under the resin coating. You can even catch a glimpse of some of the postmarked ink stamp.

And just like receiving a letter in the mail, these necklaces have a wonderful element of surprise. Each necklace comes with a card that tells you which era and country your stamps are from. Will you receive stamps from 1930s Kenya? Russia at the turn of the century? 1920s Japan? 1950s Cuba? The stamps used come from over 57 countries and were published from 1900-1960. Handmade by Betsy Treacy Siber in Chicago.

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary. Sorry, no choice of country or era. Single pendant comes in shades of blue or green. Double pendant will always be violet and red.

Round out your stamp collection with vintage stamp bracelets and vintage stamp earrings.

    Comments about Vintage Stamp Necklaces:

    The necklace is very pretty and it's very unique, but the chain seems a bit cheap, and for the size of the pendant I thought the price was too high. I bought it as a thank you gift and still plan to give it, but feel it wasn't worth the cost.

    Comments about Vintage Stamp Necklaces:

    This necklace makes a great gift! It is beautifully made and I love the fact that each one is unique. I bought this for a friend who is a world traveler. The only thing I would have liked more is if you could choose the stamp you were getting, or at least the country it was from. I wanted to give a stamp that was from one of the countries my friend had visited, in order to make it more meaningful. However, I was a bit dissapointed when I received one for a country they hadn't visited...yet! I ended up giving it anyways, since it was so beautiful and unique. It is fairly delicate, and smaller than it seems in the photos. However, the fact that it is delicate makes it great for dressing up or dressing down, and it would go with almost anything. A great gift idea...and I'd love one for myself as well!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Uncommon Goods always delivers promptly. It's almost unbelievable how fast I always receive my shipments. I love that they are packed with recycleable materials too. Everything always arrives fast and in great condition!

      I found the necklace to be very unique. The idea of reusing used postage stamps is quite clever. And the end result is a very attractive piece.

        I sent this to my mother-in-law for Christmas. She has said it's beautiful and she really likes it. I will get to see it in another week. The pictures in the magazine and on-line made it look very simple but also delicate and unique.

          i bought this item as just a gift to give on a random day to my special lady, and she found it after work and called me immediately to tell me how much she liked it- i haven't always made very good jewelry choices with her in the past, but this one went over very well.

          i wish there was a way to pick out exactly which one you wanted, since all are different and unique. other than that, there is nothing to complain about at all.

            I loved this necklace. I wear it a few times a month which is a lot when I constantly rotate my jewelry. The only thing I don't like is the double strand gets tangled very easily and it's irritating but you get over it quickly. I would still suggest the single strand necklace.

              Yeah, this was returned immediately.

              Comments about Vintage Stamp Necklaces:

              I understand and appreciate this necklace is essentially a work of art and, yes, I also understand there's an element of surprise when ordering this product. However, I did not imagine that the largest stamp on the double strand necklace would be that of a seriously creepy old dude with a sledge hammer over his shoulder. I'm down with creepy art, but not when I'm ordering it for a friend whose, let's say, not so comfortable having an old man with an instrument of death hanging from her neck. Buyer be weary here - you too could end up with a necklace that results in you uttering "yep, return immediately."
