Choose a special town or city to make our personalized map necklace a unique keepsake gift. Map piece is hand-cut from a vintage map or atlas and mounted under domed glass in a metal pendant. Pendant is 1" (25mm) round on matching 24"(61cm) long chain. Both are nickel-free metal. Matching necklaces in any quantity can be ordered - just check with us to see if we have enough of the same map in stock.
Your custom map necklace will arrive on a jewelry card with the location and maker/year of the map noted on it. Gift box is included and gift wrapping is also available.
HOW TO PERSONALIZE: Choose gift wrapping option, color and quantity. Click "Add to Cart" and list the town/city you want in the "Note to Seller" at checkout. Towns and cities work best in this necklace. Larger state universities and private colleges are noted on maps (US only). States, provinces and countries are generally not possible. Smaller ones like Hawaii, Ireland, New Zealand may be possible. Streets and parks in larger U.S. cities (NYC, Chicago, etc.) may be available.

No, I use authentic vintage paper maps and bound world atlas books to create my work. Generally, I use maps from the late 1930's to 1970's. However, I do use newer maps and atlases as needed for newer countries or if it's the right scale for the design.
We do not offer previews prior to ordering nor do we send proofs before shipping. This is due mostly to the fact that we use actual vintage maps and atlases which are hand-cut to order based on the custom location and the design.
