Hide your sentiments in plain sight with Braille-inspired jewelry by Touchstone.
Jewelry has always been a way to express ourselves and convey our sentiments, whether it's a necklace that reminds us of a loved one or a ring that symbolizes a special moment in our lives. However, sometimes we may want to keep our sentiments private and share them only with those who understand their significance. This is where Touchstone jewelry comes in – it allows us to hide our sentiments in plain sight and share them only with those who can ‘read’ Braille (unless we reverse the pendant to show the translation).
Touchstone is a brand that specializes in Braille-inspired message jewelry. Their collection includes bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings that feature raised points, much like Braille writing. These ‘dots’ can spell out words, initials, or symbols that hold special meaning to the wearer. In this guide, we''ll explore the world of Braille-inspired jewelry and how it can help you keep a secret.
What is Braille?
Braille is a system of raised dots that can be read with the fingers by people who are blind or visually impaired. It was invented by Louis Braille in the early 19th century and has since become the most widely used reading and writing system for the blind. Braille consists of six dots arranged in a rectangular grid, with each dot representing a letter, number, or punctuation mark.
How does Braille-inspired jewelry work?
Braille-inspired jewelry works by using raised dots to spell out words or symbols that hold special meaning to the wearer. The dots can be arranged in different ways to create different words and symbols. For example, the letter "A" is represented by a single dot, while the letter "B" is represented by two dots. The dots can be raised or lowered to create different combinations, allowing for a wide range of possibilities.
Touchstone jewelry is made using high-quality materials such as sterling silver, 14k and 18k gold, crystals, diamonds and semi-precious stones. The ‘words’ are carefully crafted to ensure they are easy to read and feel comfortable against the skin. Each piece is designed to be both beautiful and functional, allowing the wearer to express themselves in a unique and meaningful way.
Why choose Braille-inspired jewelry?
Braille-inspired jewelry offers a unique way to express yourself and keep a secret at the same time. The raised dots are discreet and can be easily read by those who understand Braille, while remaining invisible to those who don't. This makes it a great way to convey a personal message or sentiment without having to share it with the world. Additionally, Braille-inspired jewelry is a great way to show support for the blind and visually impaired community. By wearing jewelry that features Braille, you can raise awareness and promote inclusivity. It's a small but meaningful way to make a difference.
How to choose the right piece of hidden message jewelry
When choosing a piece of personal message or sentiment jewelry, there are several things to consider. Here are some tips to help you make the right choice:
- Choose a word or symbol that holds special meaning to you – This could be your name, the name of a loved one, a special date, or a symbol that represents something important to you. Touchstone offers several messages and power words: Beloved, Badass, Limitless, Fearless, You Got This, Mon Amour, and I Love You.
- Consider the size and style of the piece – Think about where you will be wearing the jewelry and what kind of outfit it will be paired with. A larger bracelet or necklace may be more appropriate for a casual outfit, while a smaller earring or ring may be better suited for a formal occasion. We like designs that can be worn with anything – many of our clients never take their Touchstone jewelry off!
- Choose a high-quality piece – Any jewelry you invest in should be well-made and durable, with a pleasing design and comfortable feel. Look for pieces that are made from high-quality materials such as sterling silver or 14k gold, and that have been crafted with care.
- Consider the readability of the Braille – Make sure it is clear and easy to read. You want to make sure that those who understand Braille can read the message or symbol you are trying to convey.
- Personalize your piece – Some companies, like Touchstone, allow you to personalize your Braille-inspired jewelry by choosing your own word or symbol. This can make the piece even more meaningful and special to you. Examples of Braille-inspired jewelry Here are some examples of Braille-inspired jewelry from Touchstone.
