This trendy necklace features a gold-filled bar, personalized with your anniversary date in roman numerals on a 18" gold filled chain. Perfect as a gift for your bride or as an anniversary present. 1.25" bar can fit 10-15 characters and the 1.5" bar can fit up to 20 characters. Both bars are 1/4" in height. These bars are a sturdy 20 gauge and unlike thin, cheap gold-plated pieces, they will keep their shape and finish for years to come. Gold-filled pieces have a much thicker layer of gold mechanically bonded to them and unlike gold-plated jewelry, the finish will not rub or flake off with regular wear. I hand stamp, polish, punch and assemble these necklaces myself and all will vary slightly due to their handmade nature. Every item is made to order and there is normally a 3-5 day turnaround time, but during the holiday season a large volume of orders may mean a longer processing time.
