Yondale Designs is not a big company, we are a home-based
husband/wife team and have three children. We are located on
the Darling Downs in the south-eastern corner of Queensland,
Family commitments come first (for Bronte), and
farming/seasonal work come first (for Ross). We do try our
best to have a quick turnaround with our products, but
the majority of our designs are not simple pieces, ie. a
quick stamp of a name and out in the post that day.
We do all stamping, soldering, and leatherwork/plaiting on–site here at Yondale Designs. We are very proud of the work
that we accomplish here, and our designs that we offer.
We welcome queries on our products by email or telephone,
and are happy to work to deadlines - within reason. Please
note that occasions such as Valentines Day, Mothers Day,
Fathers Day and Christmas generate a lot of interest/orders
for our range of jewellery, and please bear this in mind
when ordering. Our website will show the cut off dates for
these occasions. Please include a contact telephone with any
email queries. Sometimes it is quicker if we can call
you to finalise an order or just to answer your query.
Yondale Designs (Bronte) individually and personally
hand-stamps each pendant, letter by letter. No two items
will be alike due to this process. Letters may not be
aligned perfectly like an engraved article, but this effect
adds to the personalisation and quirkiness of hand-stamped
jewellery. Note: when ordering a stamped item, the onus is
on YOU to provide the correct spelling of the names to be
Please let us know your required font preference for your
order. Sometimes your chosen font may not be possible due to
space constraints on the design, but please trust our
judgement in this instance if we suggest an alternative
Due to the stamping process, only one side of the pendants
can be stamped as slight scuffing occurs underneath the
pendant, however some pendants can be stamped on the reverse
side. Please enquire if you wish any pendants stamped on the
underside, and we will advise if this is possible.
Due to the personalisation of these products, items cannot
be returned or exchanged. No refunds or exchanges are given
if you decide to change your mind or are not happy with the
end product upon receipt or viewing of same - once an item
is stamped, it cannot be 'reused'. However, if a word is
misspelled by us when stamping, we will redo the order.
If you are after perfection with perfect alignment with
stamping, see a Jeweller and look into purchasing an
engraved item. It stands to reason that as it is our
work on display for everyone to see, we will not send a
pendant out to you if we are not happy with it ourselves.
Sterling Silver: All tags, discs, pendants,
fittings, and necklaces are made with 92.5% Sterling Silver.
All leather necklaces are made from cowhide, and lacing
featured in some designs incorporates beautifully soft Red
American Deer hide. Our Strapped Bracelet and Stockman
Bracelet range are made using Australian Kangaroo leather.
Gold-filled: Our gold-filled range of pendants
is either 14ct or 18ct gold, layered over jeweller’s brass.
Please note that this range of jewellery is a lovely item
for the price, but in our opinion it is still a ‘plated’
product. We do not recommend ‘every day’ wear for this range
of jewellery, and are not liable for any general wear or
lack of durability of gold-fill jewellery over the lifetime
of the product.
Gold-plated: Our LARGE openwork family trees
are gold-plated. PLEASE NOTE: if you have a
Nickel Allergy, this pendant contains traces of the product
due to its manufacturing process. The LARGE openwork
family tree is the ONLY product we stock with this
9ct/White Gold/Rose Gold: We are gradually
introducing precious metals into our stamped range of
jewellery. These items are displayed and noted accordingly.
There is a minimum three (3) week turnaround with our
precious metal jewellery as these are custom made upon
Note: We do not offer,
nor have any interest in, silver plated charms, swarovski
crystals or trinkets (other than the odd freshwater pearl or
gemstone) with our stamped pendants.

The lettering on stamped pendants is usually darkened (oxidised),
however plain stamped pendants look pretty classy 'as is'.
Again, this is personal preference. Lettering is not
darkened on any gold-filled designs.
Jump rings will be soldered on sterling silver pendants
where possible. We do not solder any pieces that incorporate

pendants .. As a rough guideline for Australia customers,
22mm = 10c piece / 25mm = 20c piece / 32mm = 50c piece.
Chains are not included in our pricing. We have a large
range of chains available for purchase to accompany our
pendants. We can also make up leather necklaces to size and
can offer a large range of colours. Our range can be found
on the Chains page.
Care of Jewellery..

which includes a Polishing Cloth and Polishing Pad.
Extra Polishing Packs can be purchased from Yondale Designs
at any time for $12.00, inclusive of regular postage.
Silver will tarnish over time, there is no escaping this
fact. Humidity, chemicals in the air, the acidity of a
person's skin, perfume, etc will all tarnish silver. To keep
your product tarnish free, keep it in an airtight plastic
bag when not being worn. Please use the Polishing Pad (the
little white square) included with your order to remove all
tarnish, and then follow up with the polishing cloth. Please
do not use any silver dip to clean your jewellery.
Some people will turn silver jewellery 'black' or make it
tarnish very quickly. This is out of our control, and
is through no fault or part of Yondale Designs, ie. we
will not give a refund if this occurs.
Cleaning of your Jewellery
We are happy to clean your Yondale Designs pendant for you
