Indian Ink

India Ink

To ink or not to ink. This Hollister badge
is shown with and without inking.Some
styles have a classical look without inking while other styles seem to cry out for this highlighting technique.

Our badges come with a black antique
Indian ink (india ink) which is standard
in the jewelry industry to highlight lettering for items such as class rings. With proper care of your badge, the Indian ink will last for many years, however, it is NOT permanent.
In addition, if you expose the badge and the ink on the badge to excessive water or heat exposure, it will cause the Indian ink to "float" up & out of the pendant in areas. Also, the chemicals in most standard jewelry cleaners will cause the ink to be removed in areas. Do
not expose your badge to alcohol, acetone or any other cleaning solvent. Should your badge become so dirty that it requires additional cleaning, use soapy lukewarm water to gently
rinse, and dry with a soft cloth.  If your ink has begun "lifting" simply take it to any qualified local jeweler in your area to "re ink" (it takes only minutes & most will not charge a fee.)  OR you may return the badge to us, and we will refurbish your badge for only the cost of shipping. We appreciate your patience & understanding should this bit of "re-crafting" become needed.




Engraved badge number on front


Engraving is a process by which surfacing etching is done by a machine.  Some people choose to personalize the backs of our pendants using the engraving process. For the smaller charms (for charms bracelets and earring sizes) this is the only way your badge charm can be customized with your number. The charge for Engraving is only $1.00 per letter / number.



3 numbers: $15


On most of our badges, your numbers can be added
with miniature 14kt yellow Gold or White Gold numbers. If we manufacture a badge in Yellow Gold - either 10, 14 or 18kt, we prefer to set the numbers in White Gold. This allows for the numbers to be set apart & not disappear into the badge. Of course, you may specify to have the same color numbers if you wish. Since these numbers are gold, we charge $5.00 per number to solder them to your badge.


Diamonds / Birthstones

Diamonds set in badge


Customizing your badge with diamonds is a nice touch and most will accommodate at least one diamond for accent - if not more. Please call or email for a price estimate to add either diamonds or birthstones to your badge.


In Master

Name Recessed
                                      Letters Raised

When creating a design for the first time, or making custom changes in the
artwork- you can have your badge numbers set "in the master." There is an
additional fee to customize your badge this way, but it is a very polished look. Some badge styles lend themselves to a raised style, while others look better recessed.


Two Tone Effects 


Another nice effect is a two tone look.
The badge for El Monte is done with
a special technique casting individual
pieces in both White Gold and Yellow
Gold and then assembling the pieces
together to make a 3 dimensional two tone
  badge. These custom designed orders take 2-3 weeks to complete and prices vary
depending on each badge designs unique
requirements.Another option for a two tone
look is to manufacture the badge in Yellow
Gold, and finish out individual banners with a rhodium plating, much like a gold plating technique. This is a "top coat" finish which gives the effect of a two tone badge.
The rhodium plating effect is done for a minimal additional fee.




Another option we have to really
personalize your badge, is an
effect called enameling. It is added to badge after finishing in blue, red and black colors. The enameling option is available for a minimal additional fee. The process requires 48hrs additional manufacturing time, and is

not available for RUSH orders.
