Joseph Allen Designs Personalized Hand Stamped Jewelry Review

Joseph Allen Designs
Personalized Hand Stamped Jewelry

Joseph Allen Designs is dedicated to providing you the best in hand stamped jewelry. Quality, presentation, and customer service is important to us.

All of the hand stamped jewelry designs we offer can be completely personalized. Names, words, dates, or phrases of your choosing. With or without pearls, crystals or birthstones. Most hand stamped necklaces are also available with either a satin or hammered finish that, along with your personalization, adds to their uniqueness. The choices are up to you!


I love personalized jewelry & showcasing my kiddos, so when asked to review a necklace from Joseph Allen Designs, I thought it would be a perfect chance to get a unique piece for myself.

The process was simple.  All I had to do was decide which necklace I wanted.  Ok.  It wasn’t all that simple.  I liked several of their necklaces & actually had a difficult time figuring out which one I wanted!  Once I figured out that I wanted a satin look (verses hammered), I had to decide what design.  I chose the open heart with a satin finish.

Finally, I entered in my personalized instructions (my kids’ names), length & type of chain, and their birthstones.  I sent off my information & now just had to wait.


Christmas 2011 & review 054

When my package arrived in the mail, I was excited to open it!  It was packaged with tissue and a bow that made me feel like it was Christmas all over again!  At first glance, I thought one of my daughter’s names had been printed up-side-down, but when I really looked at it, I realized that it had simply shifted while in transit & all I had to do was turn it, for it to lay nicely & the names to be easily legible.  (*Note: A couple of my pictures made the necklace look gold.  It’s actually Argentium Sterling Silver.)

I also received care instructions & a nice polishing cloth.

I really like Joseph Allen Designs & appreciate the fact that everything is original & one of a kind.  They have many other items besides necklaces.  Things like bookmarks, keychains, bracelets, etc.  I recommend them for unique gift ideas.

    Forever Circle | Hammered

  2. jodi lasher says

    I like the dog necklaces, but i also like the simple necklaces..

  3. Carmen Van Deursen says

    I like the little book of tags necklace.

  4. All the jewelry is beautiful and my favorite is one of the charm bracelets with 6 various shaped hammered charms with my 5 kids and my husband’s names on them with birthstones but I can’t afford that even if I am blessed enough to win (unless my husband says I can after my $50 off ; ) A girl can HOPE right ; )…. but if we can’t then if I am blessed enough to win this I would get the Large Forever/Eternity Circle HAMMERED with the center disc. On the center disc I would put my husband Todd’s name and then all around the circle I would put our 5 kids names Jesse, Brittany, Michae’la, Amanda, Elijah. and I would wear that bracelet or that necklace every single day.

    My husband has a tattoo on one bicep of me and my name and then he has another tattoo on his other bicep with all our kids names incorporated into it. I am just as sentimental as he is except I am not a tattoo kind of girl so wearing this beautiful meaningful piece of jewelry ALL THE TIME!

    Thank you for this very very special meaningful opportunity!
