“In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph of the house of David. The Virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, ‘Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!’ But she was greatly troubled at the saying and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son and you shall call his name Jesus.’ And Mary said to the angel, ‘How can this be since I have no husband?’ And the angel said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore, the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God for with God, nothing is impossible.’ Mary said, ‘Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be done to me according to your word.’” Luke 1:26-38
Fiat, meaning “let it be done” in Latin.
Mary’s “yes” to the Lord has had a profound effect on my life. At 15 years old, Mary said yes to God’s will for her life - that she would become the mother of Jesus. This, to me, is truly amazing! I look up to Mary for many reasons, but this one sticks out to me. She didn’t argue or ask why this was happening to her. Instead, she accepted God’s will wholeheartedly. I try to remember this, not just during advent, but throughout the whole year. God is waiting for my "yes" to accept His will!
*Please note: this is a hand stamped piece, so no two pieces will look exactly the same. Though we can’t promise perfect lines or spacing, we can guarantee that each piece will be made with careful attention to detail and a lot of love.
Perfect. Small and dainty, it was exactly what I was looking for. It shipped fast and got here with no incidents. This is my second necklace from S&T and it will not be my last.
I am very pleased with my necklace. It is dainty and an awesome reminder of Mary's "yes" and the "yes" I am called to daily. I would, however, liked for the writing to be more clearly defined on the piece. I also prefer silver to gold, so maybe that can be an option in the future. Thank you!

JEWELRY DETAILS/CARE TIPS
What materials do you use to make your jewelry?
We use high-quality metals: 14k gold fill and plated and 14k rose gold fill only. All supplies and materials used to create Stella & Tide products are sourced from the USA.
What is gold filled?
Gold filled is a pressure-bonded layer of gold that has 100 times more gold than plated jewelry. It is durable, won't chip or flake, is tarnish resistant, and is a great alternative to solid gold jewelry, at a much more reasonable price. It looks beautiful, and has a finish that will last years if cared for properly!
How do I care for my jewelry?
Store your jewelry in a dry, air-tight area such as a plastic sleeve or the box your jewelry arrived in. Use a micro abrasive polishing pad sparingly to remove any oxidation or tarnish marks. Gently rub across the surface until the shine has been restored. Occasionally remove skin oils by rinsing with warm water and buffing with a soft cloth. Take extra care around perspiration, salt, chlorine, perfume, lotions, and makeup as they can damage fine jewelry.
What chain length do you recommend?
Our go-to chain length suggestion is 16 inches! This length tends to fits most people very well.
What layering lengths do you recommend?
We suggest 1-2 inches between layers. Our most popular layering lengths are 13/14 inch or 16/18 inch combinations. Extenders are a great way to ensure the perfect layered look. If you need specific suggestions contact us—we’d love to help you out!
What payment methods do you accept?
Payments are accepted through PayPal, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, or credit/debit card (see the site footer for a full list of accepted cards).
Do I have to pay sales tax?
Only Alabama customers are charged sales tax.
What is your return policy?
We are absolutely confident in the quality of our products and want you to feel the same way. Non-custom pieces must be returned/exchanged within 14 days of receipt (based on USPS timestamp date received). Refunds can only be issued after the return package is received at S&T HQ. We are currently unable to accept returns on custom or personalized items (custom saint necklace, custom date bar necklace, etc.) and earrings. Contact us right away (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any concerns!
Can I exchange my chain length?
If you are unhappy with the length of an item, email us (email@example.com) and we will work with you to resolve the issue. We do accept length exchanges, however, you will be responsible for any shipping costs and may be subject to a $9-12 re-working fee.
Does my order come with a warranty?
Yes! All S&T pieces have a 30-day warranty for any chain or clasp defects. Email us right away if you're having issues with a broken chain or faulty clasp (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can resolve the issue. If your jewelry breaks after the 30-day time frame, contact us and we will work with you on a replacement!
