Late spring brings a season of excitement with it—the good weather, the idea that summer is around the corner, and important milestones like school graduations. And now you can surprise your graduate with something more than just the typical bulky class ring. Something personalized and from the heart that will commemorate this momentous occasion.
Nelle & Lizzy Graduation Jewelry Gifts
Design a ring that is simple and sophisticated but also customized with a hand-stamped name, school, Greek affiliation, mascot, class year, or graduation date. Salute your Salutatorian, validate your Valedictorian, or make any graduate feel special with a unique piece of jewelry that he/she can wear for posterity with celebration jewelry from Nelle & Lizzy:
Our Personalized Class Ring can be a hand-stamped name, graduation date, school or college/university name or mascot, or inspirational words and phrases, such as “CLASS OF. . .”, “DREAM”, “CONQUER”, “BELIEVE”, or “YOU DID IT!” Or, if you want triple the bling, you can stamp a bunch of words or phrases (up to 12 characters per band) on the same ring with our Triple Class Ring.
For a more traditional appeal, you can add your graduate’s birthstone or his/her school’s color scheme to a Class Ring. Then, you can pair it with a hand-stamped word or phrase of your choice.
A new twist on school pride can be with our Latitude and Longitude Bangle Bracelet in silver. We will stamp the coordinates of the address you provide, then you can choose a name, a graduation date, a team name or mascot, your dorm room number, or the word “H♥ME” to commemorate your favorite location or memory of school.
To guide them into successful endeavors, the “Follow Your Arrow” necklace, with or without a birthstone in the arrow’s head, can point your graduate in the right direction for the future.

The idea of “karma” has existed for centuries—it is derived from a Sanskrit word primarily meaning “action” and first appeared in a Hindu text called the Rigveda sometime before c. 1500 BCE. Connected to the notion of cause and effect, it is a law that dictates that your actions translate to results—i.e. good actions lead to good results, and so on. This idea is embedded in a famous quote from the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the spiritual scriptures of the Sikh religion: “As she has planted, so does she harvest; such is the field of karma.” Over time, karma has evolved from a religious law prescribed in ancient South Asian religions to being a universal philosophy followed by the masses, despite any religious or cultural leanings.
Become a Karma Chameleon
Nelle & Lizzy’s Karma Collection, a selection of silver jewelry wearables, uses the shape of a circle to represent the essence of karma, or the notion that “what goes around comes around.” The pieces also serve as a reminder that if you put good things into the world, then good things will be given back to you. You can satiate your spiritual side with numerous pieces from our Karma Collection, including:
Manifest your metaphysical radiance with Karma necklaces that radiate love and generosity, from our triple-ring style to a swirl or a solitary pearl surrounded by a diaphanous circle.
Beam with brilliance by wearing our Karma bracelets in a variety of shapes and styles, including those that envelop your wrist with a circle and chain, or be bolder with our hammered and riveted or textured bangles.
Our Karma earrings come in many styles, including single or double hoops, swirls, and you can add a hammered finish that gives them depth and allows light to refract and shine. Think of the shining light as the good vibes bouncing off in all directions.
Ancient philosophies benefit from antique adornments—treat yourself as well as you treat others with a Karma bangle and ring set with our antique finish!

Mothers shower us with their love and affection all year round but on May 12th, it’s time to turn the tables and shower them with our undivided attention (and gifts too)! Mother’s Day gifts—like homemade meals and flowers—don’t have to be fleeting; they can become cherished, everlasting mementos that can even be passed down for generations. Here are some steadfast traditions that Mom will enjoy this Mother’s Day, but also some new ideas that will wow her and affect her deeply.
Familiar is Good, but Unique can be Better
Some people go with what they know works: waking up early on Mother’s Day morning while Mom’s still snoozing away, toiling over a home-cooked breakfast or brunch, and delicately waking Mom up with a tray of delicacies and dainties. Moms LOVE a homemade meal—after years of cooking meals for their families, it is a refreshing twist! Or, maybe you are a lover of flowers and their alluring scents and beauty; usually, Mom is too. Nothing brightens up a room and Mom’s mood like a beautiful bouquet of blossoms.
Moms also relish homemade or custom-written Mother’s Day cards. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Mom that doesn’t have a stash of homemade cards from their children stashed away in a shoebox in their basement or attic. Nothing expresses love and appreciation more than a lovingly designed and written card. However, if you are looking for something a bit different to surprise Mom with on Mother’s Day, here are some ideas from Nelle & Lizzy that will last a lifetime:
A Triple Name Ring, our best-selling intertwined band, can be stamped, or personalized, with names, significant dates, or special words. It is up to you how to customize this ring for Mom.
Michael J. Fox once said, “Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” Celebrate the family Mom has nurtured with the Family Bangle Bracelet. Add whatever makes it special and unique to Mom, such as the latitude and longitude of the place your family calls “home” stamped on it. This way Mom can always find her way home and into the arms of family.
Use your imagination and creative skills to design Mom her own personalized stacking ring. Pair an initial band with a birthstone band to represent each member of the family. Or, if you are a spouse or significant other, design a couple’s ring for her with both of your initials and birthstones.
Our gold Count Your Blessings necklace will be treasured and can get passed along for generations. Customize with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 birthstones of those who Mom cherishes and loves. The word “blessed” is engraved on the back of the necklace for added meaning.
We love stacking bangle bracelets ~ especially if they are our Beloved Bangles ~ and so will MOM! Mix colors and styles to create a personalized bracelet that is extra meaningful to her!
Daughters can also celebrate the special bond they have with their mothers by sporting matching Mother-Daughter Rings—the double intertwined band is the perfect symbol of this sacred relationship, AND they can be worn by daughters and passed down to future generations for eternity.

The diamond needs no introduction. One of the most coveted gemstones in the entire world, the diamond is the object of many women’s desire – there is even an old adage that has inspired jazz songs and movies surrounding its theme that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. But did you know that the diamond is also April’s birthstone? Let’s learn more about the origin and traits of the diamond that has contributed to cementing its high standing among social classes and the world.
History & Current Use
The word “diamond” originates from the Greek word “adamas”, or to possess something that is unconquerable. The desire for mining diamonds stems back to the Middle Ages and the mere sight of a diamond spurred mine owners to spread rumors that they were poisonous so no others could obtain it. As you now know, diamonds are coveted by miners and fiancées around the world over and the bigger, the clearer, the shinier the diamond is, the more valuable and desirable it becomes.
The diamond is also been believed to harness strength, based on its ability to cast off light and evil spirits when it is cut with many facets. In fact, the ancient Hindus believed that the diamond possessed strength equal to the power of lightning and could also provide protection during wartime.
Versatile & Brilliant
One reason that the diamond was designated as the April birthstone is that April is known for rain showers and rebirth (early spring), and diamonds resemble the clearest of water. If you have ever gazed into the infinite facets of a beautifully cut diamond, you can get lost in its shapes and intricacies, almost like trying to locate yourself in a hall of mirrors! Due to the tradition of being gifted to fiancées as a symbol of everlasting love, the diamond procurer, DeBeers, coined the phrase, “A Diamond is Forever”.
But you may not be aware of the sheer volume of colors that the diamond naturally occurs in beyond clear or “colorless” – ranging from yellow to orange to blue to pink to brown and even BLACK. Also, thanks to recent developments in science, diamonds are now even more plentiful because they can be grown in a lab!
The Epitome of Bling
The reasons for selecting a diamond to wear are hypnotically clear! Nelle & Lizzy can set a diamond Swarovski crystal for your April birthstone in a variety of styles or shapes—in rectangle, square, or round—and can be selected in gold or silver. From customizable birthstone bars to stackable rings and charms, we have clear crystals that mimic the look of flawless diamonds.
Do you have someone you love or important in your life with an April birthday? Nelle & Lizzy jewelry makes the perfect gift! Shop our website and check our Pinterest board for ideas for different styles of diamond-inspired jewelry.
Evoking serenity and tranquility of the sea, March’s birthstone, Aquamarine, is one of those gems in which you can’t help but gaze see images of water cascade through your mind’s eye.
It is not a coincidence that the word itself derives from the Latin word “aqua”, which translates to “water or marina”. Usually, light in tone and fluctuating between green and blue hues, the color becomes deeper and more intense the larger the stone is. The aquamarine is a favorite of Nelle and Lizzy, providing an opportunity to customize attention-grabbing statement pieces.
A Protective Power
Aquamarine’s mythology spans history and it was believed to possess lots of magical and protective powers by ancient peoples, including the power to protect sailors on the water and warriors headed into battle. It was even thought to be able to fix conflicts between friends or start new relationships when carved into figurines.
Aquamarine has also been believed to harness healing powers, dispensed by medicine men to cure infections and heal eye ailments, and worn by people in the Middle Ages as a talisman to ward off being poisoned. In fact, even today, aquamarine is believed by psychics and Tarot card readers to calm people’s mental state and can act as an aid for meditation by producing inner peace and harmony.
In addition to being the March birthstone, aquamarine has a tradition of being gifted to brides as a symbol of everlasting love. Some even gift it in order to reinvigorate or reawaken love between two people who have been together for a long time, and surprisingly, it is the selected gemstone to celebrate the 19th wedding anniversary! Since it inherently contains little to no yellow tinge, it can also be paired with different colored metals or other gemstones, since it retains its solitary brilliance.
The Swarovski crystals Nelle & Lizzy uses for the March birthstone are a hypnotic crystal blue and can be put into a variety of styles or shapes—from a rectangle, square to round—and can be selected in gold or silver.
Do you have someone you love or important in your life with a March birthday? Nelle & Lizzy custom jewelry makes the perfect gift! Shop our site for different styles of stackable rings, bars, and charms with birthstone jewelry.

While falling in love is mainly attributed to a significant other, the term love can apply to those you admire, appreciate, and adore. So, where were you when you knew it was love?
In a relationship it may hit you like a ton of bricks. You are able to visualize where you were and pinpoint that one moment in time when you discovered the person standing next to you was the one. The backdrop, the vistas, the sunsets, or even at home in front of the tv…it’s carved into your soul, and brings you back to those feelings that changed you forever.
However, like the proverbial song says, “love is all around us,” and often times it takes other forms as well. For instance, for newly minted parents gazing into the cherub face of their hours old baby, they are stricken with an overwhelming sense of emotion that can only be described as a love they never knew. Or, for besties that shared laughs, a heartfelt conversation, and a special time together in a place that evokes a cherished memory, the love of a great friend is limitless and invaluable.
As Valentine’s Day approaches and you’re inundated with hearts, flowers, and chocolates, consider that moment you fell in love. Replicate the joy you felt with a gift that represents that special place and all its significance. Suddenly, those commercial tokens and trinkets just don’t do it justice.
At Nelle & Lizzy, we understand the meaning behind gift giving and know that to truly convey feelings is a much more personalized experience. That’s why we’ve designed the unique Longitude and Latitude collection. It lets you pinpoint where you were when special times were had, and allows you to share it with someone special to make a lasting impression.
It’s etched into your brain and imprinted onto your heart, and now with our stamped metal collection, you’ll not only give meaningful gifts, but also zero in on beloved memories. This Valentine’s Day take them back to the coordinates of love. And turn a simple spot into an individualized gift that means the world to the both of you.
