Tagging Your Jewelry

By August 22, 2006

Follow me on:

Over the past few weeks, I've had a number of emails from readers asking about hang tags and signature tags.

First, hang tangs are handy to have attached to a piece of jewelry you plan to sell because it offers a spot for you to include information about the materials used in the necklace, earrings, or bracelet. There are a number of ways you can get customized hang tags, and I have an article that gives you a few different options for this: Jewelry Hang Tags and Earring Cards.

If you don't mind buying off the rack so to speak, check with vendors such as Rio Grande. They have a catalog devoted to items such as jewelry displays and tags.

Finally, if you are looking for a tag that will permanently stay on your jewelry, your signature in a way, then there are also various options for creating metal tags to attach to your jewelry. See Signing Your Jewelry and More on Metal Stamps.

I think metal tags with your own stamp is the way to go. However, I have thought of another way someone could jump start marking their own jewelry, especially if there are financial constraints. For example, you can use little hematite hearts, stars or use a specific bead. As in antiques, you can change the color or shape every year. You would then know when you made the specific piece.

Yes, I’ve heard of that too – sort of a “signature” bead.

Rio Grande catalog is one of the best I could find.
