The engraving on my jewellery looks different to my friend/family members' jewellery. Why is that?
Each item is individually created in the Merci Maman workshop. The beauty of our jewellery is that the personalisation is engraved by hand rather than a machine and there are sometimes subtle differences between individual hand-engraving styles. Although we try to match the styles as closely as possible, any irregularities should be appreciated as part of a unique design.
My engraving will not fit in the space provided on the product page. What can I do?
Our experienced engravers recommend the maximum number of characters per charm. If your preferred engraving is more than what is recommended, please note it in the comments box at the bottom of the product page and we will contact you if we have any queries. If you have further questions regarding the length of your engraving please contact us on 020 7731 1377 or at [email protected]
Will my chosen engraving be on one or two sides of the charm?
All our charms can be engraved on both sides. Please enter the engraving in the two boxes provided on each product page. Where there is only one box, please enter your engraving as per the example, ie. “Amelia / 12.05.11” (where the forward-slash indicates the difference between the front and reverse engraving). If no different engraving is entered for the reverse side, we will automatically engrave the same on both sides, unless we are instructed otherwise.

My jewellery has begun to tarnish, what can I do?
Unfortunately, jewellery can be affected by everyday elements such as exposure to water, heat, chlorine and chemicals found in beauty products/perfumes. Sterling silver products will naturally begin to tarnish over time as a result of exposure to oxygen. Please visit our Care & Cleaning page to find out more about how to best care for your Merci Maman jewellery.
Where is the hallmark on my jewellery?
All of our silver charms are made of high-quality 925 sterling silver. Our gold and rose gold designs are made from brass plated with 18K gold or 18K rose gold. These are hallmarked with recognition of the quality plating. Several of our products are hallmarked on the reverse of the charm itself but on some of our items it may be located on the loop of the charm. On chains, the hallmark can be found on the ring next to the clasp.
