Custom Personalized Engraving
Certainly! Many customers choose to personalize our sterling silver/gold brass cuff bracelets & necklaces with custom engraving. Our custom engraving service is ideal for including a loved one's name, favorite Bible verse, inspirational quote, or message of encouragement. Various font styles and design symbols are available to help you create the perfect design for your custom engraved jewelry.
Alternatively, we are able to engrave an exact scaled replica of your, or a loved one's, original handwriting. We take great joy in creating meaningful keepsake treasures that have been designed in your heart. Each piece is engraved and meticulously polished in our Williamsburg, Virginia studio with careful attention to detail.
Yes! We are able to engrave an exact scaled replica of your, or a loved one's, original handwriting on several items in our custom personalized engraved jewelry & gift collection. Handwriting is best duplicated when created in dark ink. Images should be in focus with a light background. Handwriting is best submitted on unlined paper. We are able to combine and join phrases from different samples if necessary. Once you have completed your purchase, please email your JPEG or PNG file that contains the handwriting that you would like engraved to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jewelry marked with .925 indicates that the item is created from sterling silver. The .925 stamp indicates that the composition is created from an alloy of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. Since pure silver is too soft for sustained use, the addition of copper enhances the durability without harming the shine. Our sterling silver jewelry is guaranteed to be both lead-free and nickel-free making it a hypoallergenic choice for those with sensitive skin. All sterling silver jewelry available for purchase at Clothed with Truth contains the artist's makers mark as well as the .925 stamp.
Sterling silver jewelry should not come into contact with harsh household chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, or chlorine. To avoid scratches, store silver in a lined jewelry box or pouch. Sterling silver jewelry is prone to tarnish as it naturally reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the air. To keep tarnishing to a minimum, it is strongly advised that you store your silver jewelry in a dry and air-tight area. Anti-tarnish strips will also help to keep your sterling silver bright and shiny while in storage. Keep in mind that tarnish does not permanently damage your jewelry in any way as it is simply on the surface of your jewelry.
Cleaning and wearing silver jewelry regularly will prevent the build up of tarnish and help maintain its shine. Upon noticing any discoloration, use a gentle silver polishing cloth made specifically for removing tarnish. We do not recommend cleaning your sterling silver jewelry with silver polish or liquid cleaners as this may dull the finish and/or remove the antiquing.
All of our silver jewelry is made of solid .925 sterling silver. Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. While skin discoloration is uncommon, some people may experience a chemical reaction to copper alloys. This can occur when copper alloys come in contact with moisture such as perspiration, water, and humidity or certain acids found in lotions, household cleaning products, and perfumes. This reaction is harmless and will subside. Should you notice discoloration, we recommend that you clean the jewelry item with warm water and a drop of mild dish detergent, and then polish the piece with a silver jewelry cleaning cloth.
Our 14k gold bracelets and necklaces are created in the USA from solid 14k gold.
We use natural freshwater pearls in the vast majority of our designs. We carry a few bracelet designs which feature Swarovski crystal-core pearls as indicated within their individual product descriptions. Our gemstone jewlery is created with 100% natural genuine gemstones. In today's world where so many dyed and synthetic stones have flooded the market, we strive to bring you the best that nature has to offer from the most reputable stone cutters in the USA. Specific details may be found within individual product pages.
Yes, all of our fine-pewter, gold brass, sterling silver, and 14k gold jewelry is both nickel and lead free making it a hypoallergenic choice that can be safely worn by those with sensitive skin.
Our 14k gold pendants are available for purchase without the accompanying chain. Each of our sterling silver and fine pewter necklaces are only available for purchase as a complete pendant and chain set.
Get to Know Us
Clothed with Truth is a true mom & pop. Rhett & Deborah wear lots of hats around here. Rhett completes all of our engraving and pretty much handles any tool with a plug. He received his doctorate in nuclear particle physics, so he approaches most tasks scientifically. He is the practical, patient, and analytical brain of our team who steadies the ship. Deborah, on the other hand, is the free-spirited dreamer who is continually running full steam ahead with wild abandon. She is the one who envisions and creates new "experiments" for the team. We balance each other out perfectly! Click or tap here learn more about our story.
Clothed with Truth was established in November of 2014. We previously owned a local coffee roastery & cafe here in Williamsburg from 1999 - 2006. We sold the shop when our oldest began kindergarten and spent the next years teaching in the local public schools. As our children grew older we were able to get back to business and Clothed with Truth came to life.
In short...we walk and talk quite a bit. It's not glamorous, but we love sharing that time together nonetheless. We are often out with our 8 year old golden retriever, Chase, who loves to stop and say hello to the neighbors at each and every opportunity. Recently, we've been spending our Sunday afternoons exploring the quaint historic district of Colonial Williamsburg. We also enjoy binge watching The Great British Baking Show...and trying out a few recipes along the way - some successfully, and some not so much!
Fun! If you've not played this game before, here's how it works... two statements are true, one is not. Take a guess at which is which :) Here's Rhett's...
1. Rhett grew up in Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas. He has a selfie taken with George W. Bush aka "Dubya" saved on his phone.
2. Rhett was a contestant on Wheel-of-Fortune. His winning puzzle solve? Saskatchewan
3. Rhett worked as a Forest Ranger in the White Mountains of New Hampshire during a summer break from college. During this time, he learned how to knit.
1. Deborah raised an abandoned baby squirrel that she named Charlton, as in Charlton Heston. Her lifetime of pets includes cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish, fire-bellied toads, hermit crabs, a green iguana and a spotted leopard gecko. She married a man who never had a pet.
2. One of Deborah's favorite games is family push-up competitions shamelessly complete with individualized hype songs. In the early days she could do 48 push-ups in a row. Presently, she's lucky to reach 20, okay 10...on a good day.
3. Deborah has mad organizing skills, but is slightly OCD. She calls it CDO...so it is in alphabetical order. She has finally decided that Southern Living has no plans to show up at any moment. With this new found freedom she no longer makes the bed each morning.
1. FALSE - Rhett grew up in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas, but sadly he's never met "Dubya". In fact, we don't even own a cell phone (crazy, but true), so selfies are rarely captured.
2. TRUE - Rhett really was a contestant on Wheel-of-Fortune. His winning puzzle solve, Saskatchewan, was aided by living in Vancouver, BC during his post-doc years. The upcoming birth of our youngest was announced to our family by Pat Sajak during Rhett's contestant introduction. Bonus: Rhett's family immigrated to the US from Taiwan when he was 6 years old. He learned English watching the show during those first years in the US :)
3. TRUE - Rhett worked as a forest ranger in the White Mountains of New Hampshire during the summer between his sophomore and junior years at Dartmouth college. During this time, his fellow forest rangers taught him how to knit. He is indeed a man of rare & hidden talents! He knitted Deborah a sweater a few years later & it remains one of her most treasured gifts to this day.
1. TRUE - Charleton was found on the streets of Long Island, NY when Deborah was a teenager. Furless and pink, eyes unopened, looking a bit alien in nature...it was love at first sight. She fed him canned kitten milk with an eye-dropper and a kitten bottle until he grew into proper a full fledged rambunctious grey squirrel. Yes, Rhett has adjusted nicely to furry, feathery, scaly, shelled, and somewhat slime laden friends. God bless him!
2. TRUE - As a little girl, Deborah used to sit on her father's back while he did push-ups and then on his feet while he did sit-ups. Rocky was his favorite movie during those years. We watched it dozens of times. Deborah's hype song?...You guessed it, Eye of the Tiger. Bonus: We named our first dog Apollo after Apollo Creed.
3. FALSE - While Deborah is recovering nicely from a lifelong case of CDO, she still makes the bed first thing every morning. Sometimes, she puts the pillows out of order just to prove that she can ;) That's what she calls living life on the edge!
Our mission is to inspire others to stand firm on God's promises, knowing that nothing can separate you from His unfailing love. We wanted to create wearable reminders of God's word - our ultimate source of truth - to share a message of joy, hope, and encouragement; to shine the light of Christ into the world. There were several scripture verses that spoke to us as we sought God's direction for selecting a name (shared below) and after some time of reflection we were lead to the words "Clothed with Truth".
"Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long." Psalm 25:5
"Every word of God proves true; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him." Proverbs 30:5
"Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as reminders on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, speaking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Deuteronomy 11:18-19.
"Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart." Proverbs 3:3
"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Colossians 3:12
"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Ephesians 6:10-17

Fruit of the Spirit bracelet
This company is the best company I have worked with in a long time. If could I would I would give them 100 stars. They were easy to work with, very kind and their main goal was to ensure I was satisfied with my bracelet. I did have to return my bracelet only because of my preference and they made the process so easy. They even called me to better understand what I wanted. It was an amazing experience. I would recommend this business to anyone and everyone. Thank you for displaying Christian principles in your business.
Best customer service I have experienced in a while! I placed my order for a personalized dog tag with a Bible scripture and the very next day I got a phone call from them verifying the proof they emailed me. They wanted to make sure that I was going to love it before they sent it to me! So kind of them to go the extra step...and the jewelry is Sterling Silver and not cheap junk. I will definitely order from them again. This company operates with integrity and kindness!
Amazing his/hers cuff bracelets. Exceptional quality, truly blessed company and professional but old school owners. Would definitely recommend Clothedwithtruth to anyone looking for jewelry that displays their love for Christ. Amen!
This bracelet is perfect for the women and teens in my life. The packaging is beautiful, too, saving me wrapping time. Shipped quickly and I received a personal phone call to help me clarify and update my order. The best customer service and personal touches I’ve ever experienced.
And in our world today we are so use to being disappointed it was breathe to my soul to receive these beautiful bracelets exactly as pictured and on time. While we know this isn’t always possible I particularly appreciated all the communication I received as the bracelets were in process and transport as well as the sweet note from the owners that was enclosed in the packaging. Thank you! You made me feel like I was getting a gift!
Will make this my go-to for shopping for inspirational/faith based gifts
I reached out to the owners because I needed some larger quantities for an event. I was thrilled with the prompt and professional response. Deborah really was able to help with different choices and personalization's that made our gifts extra special. I cannot say enough about dealing with people who truly care about their customers --it SHOWS! It is a pleasure doing business with them, and everything I ordered was so very true to picture and much better quality than I was expecting for the cost. Really exceeded expectations!! I would highly recommend them for church groups, bible studies and anybody needing a beautiful gift. THANK YOU!
What a breath of fresh air to have a small business with excellent customer service. The item I ordered was shipped promptly. The day I received the item was a particularly stressful day so when I opened the package, I was pleasantly surprised to receive the item in a beautiful bag/box with a handwritten thank you note on the receipt. It certainly brightened my day and reaffirmed that there are good people in this world. I will definitely be purchasing again from Clothed With Truth. Thank you!
What a special place to shop!! Clothed with Truth was so helpful to me in ordering a gift for a dear friend. They are top-notch in customer service and support, going out of their way to send my order so it was received on time. My friend loves her new bracelet, too! They also enclosed a special gift note! Thank you for a great experience and I will be back!
This was the most thoughtful and meaningful company I have purchased from in quite a while. They were impeccable with customer service, showing care and concern through confirmation emails, and thank you cards included in the package. I was very impressed with the level of care taken through each step of the process. I truly appreciated this as the time of the purchase was one of loss and sadness. I am grateful for the pointed effort to reach out to their customers. This company is true to their name.
Absolutely beautiful jewelry and WONDERFUL experience!!
Everything about this order was absolutely perfect! The customer service is top notch. Seriously, the best I’ve seen in a very long time and I am an avid online shopper.
The extra details truly make dealing with Clothed With Truth such a pleasure! I will certainly let my family and friends know about their wonderful services and products.
From the moment I placed the order, I knew exactly what was going on with it and where it was.
The piece is absolutely beautiful! I am beyond excited to give it to my niece as she makes her First Holy Communion this Saturday! The bracelet came in a white box with a pink ribbon around it, PLUS a pretty gift bag!! But wait, there is even MORE!! They sent a penny with a cross in it and a wonderful blessing! That will be an additional gift to my niece...and so special and heartfelt. I hope she will have it in her shoe on her wedding day one day!
Again, just an overall wonderful service. HIGHLY recommend! You will not be disappointed at all. And last, but certainly not least, it arrived so quickly!! Just a few days.
First time I've ordered from Clothed with Truth. I'm always hesitant to order on line. I will not hesitate to order from Rhett and Deborah at Clothed with Truth again. Not only are they trustworthy but amazingly efficient in their mailing process - took only 2 days to receive! The 10 Bethlehem Olive Wood Comfort Crosses (small palm size) were each unique and beautifully packaged. Such creative packaging and extra personal touches...coin cross card and exquisite business card - even handwritten Thank You on billing invoice. They are a Gift from God! *I'm doing my best to be a PR person for them !
The customer service is impeccable. They answered my questions promptly and throughly, anticipated my needs, and made ordering a piece of cake. The items arrived quickly and as promised. I wish all of my buying experiences were this perfect.
I have the bracelet and just had to have the pendant. It is beautiful!. I must say that you are a wonderful company to deal with. In this day and age it is a blessing to find both Christianity and good hearted people to work with. Thank you for your beautiful company and you too!!! I will be back. God bless you all!!!!🙏💕
While the mobius bracelet I purchased is a Christmas gift, I so enjoyed the entire experience of dealing with this shop. Delivery was timely, prices reasonable, and God honored throughout the entire experience. So unusual in today's market place. I absolutely will return to them in the future.
Absolutely beautiful and the most caring people you'll do business with!
This bracelet is of really sturdy handmade quality, and the engraving is crisp and beautiful with an artisan flair. Speaking with Deborah to help me find the right thing for me was such a pleasure, and never in my years of shopping online have I encountered such godly and caring people. Never hesitate to order here! :)
