The founders of Nelle and Lizzy began the company because of a simple gesture of love. Page's husband gave her a triple band interlocking ring as a push present after the birth their third son. Although she understood the meaning of the three bands she thought the ring would be even more special if it had the name of each of her boys engraved on the outside. So after going to numerous jewelers trying to find someone who could complete what she thought was an easy task of engraving the names on the bands she found out no one had the capability. She was told it was "impossible". She called her friend Martha who was not only experienced in jewelry design and retail, but he also had a heart of gold and a work ethic that can not be matched. It only took one meeting and they were on their journey to make the impossible a reality. The first ring was stamped in 2004 and continued on for the next 14 years stamping thousands of special pieces for each recipient. The business was sold in 2018 to a new owner with a vision to expand and create the line for generations to come.
N&L has been fortunate to have been recognized for their designs by Oprah (!), People Magazine, Southern Living, Parents and many more publications. As a result, the business grew fast and the line was expanded to include charms, necklaces and bracelets.
Honestly our favorite part is hearing why someone is ordering a piece. We like to know who and/or what is involved in each item we stamp. All of the Nelle & Lizzy jewelry line is designed to look in your heart and tell what's inside. If you have an idea you would like us to consider - we would LOVE to hear from you!
P.S. ~ Many people ask about the name Nelle & Lizzy - (pronounced Nell). It comes from the founders' middle names, Martha Nelle and Page Elizabeth....enjoy!
