This necklace, especially for the cost, is amazing quality. I’m absolutely going to buy from this company again

Great product,exactly what was expected.

Great product,exactly what was expected. I just wish they had a leather cord as an option for the necklace.

Beautiful product

It's exactly as described. And exactly what I wanted. The service was a love and beyond what I expected. I realized I'd ordered the wrong chain but it was already on the way when I asked them about a switch. So, I was not expecting it, but they sent me a replacement chain at no additional charge! Excellent product and service. I will purchase from them again.

Nice, exactly as pictured.

Overall, I love the necklace. It very quickly tarnished, which I didn't mind, but which you should know ahead of time. It has a rustic quality which is nice. The chain is fairly long, and can be put on or taken off without unclasping it. That's slightly longer than I generally wear, but it's a quick fix. I have a few minor complaints. The way the chain goes through the disc means that roughly 50% of the time the writing is against my chest. Additionally, the letters are fairly shallow, and in less than a week with normal wear the black paint has flaked out of the inscription in several letters. Overall, I think a wax seal version would be better, but it wasn't offered with this inscription, so I went with this one, and while I'm not disappointed, it has weathered quicker than I expected and I will probably not buy another unless this inscription is available in the wax seal version.

Inspiring Reminder Around My Neck

I love the simple reminder I get every morning when I look in the mirror and see “To Be Rather Than To Seam.” To inspire me to be who I am, truthful, genuine and comfortable in my own skin. Knowing that my purchase also helped those in need of the most basic of needs, also keeps me grounded and grateful for the basic needs I have and not to take them for granted. Thanks for the simple gift of giving. My son was also inspired to purchase one for his girlfriend and himself after showing him what Maritime Supply Co. did with the proceeds. “Excelsior!” Jonny
