Step #5: Engrave Your Memory

Each Coordinates collection piece is crafted by hand and fully inspected before shipping. The craftsmanship process ensures that each piece is given the time and attention deserved before it is delivered to you.
Once a piece has been designed and customized, and an order has been placed, the customer service agents review the order to ensure all elements are correct.
If they believe any part of the customization process has been overlooked, they will reach out to you to review and confirm the order.
The jeweler receives the design and begins creating the mold for your piece with your specific coordinates and engraving.
The piece is then polished in a multi-stage process to enhance its natural luster.
Once the metalwork is complete, stones are added to the piece. The jeweler uses hand-held tools to set the stones with precision.
Each piece is then finely inspected at the jeweler headquarters. If there are any perceived flaws, the design will be sent back to the jeweler to be created from the beginning again.
After a complete inspection, the piece is hand-packaged and shipped out to you.
Product Care Info
For the plated items, brass is used as the base metal. Brass is an alloy made of Copper and Zinc. The surface of plated jewelry is prone to becoming dull and possibly even tarnishing. In order to ensure the longevity of your coordinates coordinate piece, we recommend the following care.
Remove Pieces at Night: Don’t sleep with plated jewelry, night sweat, and the extra rubbing against the skin will cause the plating to wear off faster over time. Remove at night to extend the lifecycle of your custom piece.
Store with Similar Items: Do not put away gold plating and silver plating together. The different metals will cause each other to tarnish, fade and/or turn colors. Have different storage places for different colors of metals. It is best to store in a dry area. Your bathroom is not an ideal place as the humidity thins the plating.
Clean with Care: Plating is much more delicate than pure metals. Do not use any chemicals to clean ANY plated item. Chemicals will fade the plating. This is my most common problem with items fading.
Do Not Swim with your piece on: Pools, Jacuzzis and hot tubs contain chlorine and muriatic acid which will discolor or corrode metal wear all conspire to affect the surface of your item. Saltwater will also affect the plating.
Avoid Abrasive Contact: Contact with hard surfaces such as metal to metal contact (more than one chain or bracelet at a time) or rubbing on a tabletop can wear through the plating surface.
Avoid Extreme conditions: Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, soap, lotion, sweating, and high humidity.
Skin Reactions / Wear and Tear: Some people are allergic to the base metal and might break out in a rash, which usually goes away after a day. If you know you are allergic to brass, bronze, copper or any other metal inquire about base metal before purchasing any plated jewelry.
The engraving will appear in the inner center of your piece.
The engravings are not done in any specific language, accents and symbols work just fine too. The coordinates pieces will be engraved with the same characters you write.
Most of the coordinate bracelets fit up to 16 characters, including spaces, plus a date. Rings fit up to 10 characters, including spaces.
You can add a personalized date and inscription to bracelets only. The date will be inscribed on the inner left of your coordinate bracelet piece.
The serial number ensures authenticity. That serial number is unique to your piece only.
Please refer to a size guide on the internet for more information on sizing options.
