Packaging and Gift Giving
Your wax seal jewelry item will arrive in a small glass topped tin along with an informational card describing the origin and heraldic symbolism of that antique wax seal. 

Then, your entire order is tucked into a signature cloth bag and wrapped in tissue secured with a sticker.

Is this a gift?  Simply enter the recipients address at checkout and include a short personalized note and we will include a handwritten note tag on your behalf ~ it’s a small tag so please keep it brief.

  *Please note, orders going to different addresses will need to be ordered separately so that you can enter the address for each destination. 

Receipts are not included in the packaging since they are emailed to you when you place the order.

Do you need an extra signature cloth gift bag with your jewelry order?  Or more? Please let me know when you place your order.
