  • Graphic B is an open, stylized heart shape, used here to cover most of the face of your stone and encircle your desired text.
  • Graphic C is a little cluster of hearts, in different sizes, to be used next to your text. (One of our pictured sample rocks is shown with the cluster of hearts graphic.)

Product Description

These natural river stones are perfect for a garden, a mantle, as a memorial marker, or in celebration of a special event such as a wedding or anniversary.  The stones are hand-picked from river beds and quarries in the midwest, and no two are alike.  The natural beauty and color of these river stones withstands wind, sun, rain and snow.  Whether used indoors or out, they continue to grace their surroundings year after year and season after season.

These one-of-a-kind stones are perfect for engraving. Shapes and colors are random, and stones may have natural "flaws."  Each is selected specifically to best display the text and graphic you've selected.  They are available in sizes from a very small size that makes a lovely pocket-sized remembrance, all the way up to an oversized stone that could accommodate substantial text and multiple graphics.

Designing Your Custom Stone

The classic heart graphic and the stylized heart graphic pictured above (graphics A and B) are intended to be used in a size large enough to cover most of the surface of the stone, with any text going inside.  If you want one of those two heart styles used in a smaller size, next to text rather than encircling it, please let us know (those notes can just go into the "add'l info" field).

Graphics C through F can be used in varying sizes.  Just list the letter of the graphic or graphics you are interested in, give us the text desired for the stone (an amount suited for the size stone you are selecting, as indicated below), and select the font and the stone size.  We will arrange and size the desired graphic(s) and text in a way that is appropriate for the size stone you are getting, and you will receive a graphic proof by e-mail to approve before the stone is actually engraved.

(If you have another graphic or font you would like besides what you see here, just e-mail us with what you have in mind. In most cases, assuming the graphic is suitable for this type of engraving, your changes can be made without additional cost.)

Measurements indicated below are made across the surface of the stone.

       1 to 2 words, no graphic

Small River Stone - 4-6 inches across

The engraving is deeply etched into the stone, and the etched portion is finished in black using a weatherproof monument paint.  (If you would rather not have this detail finished in black, but would like to have the etched area left "natural," please just let us know that in the "add'l info" field.) 

There are some limitations on returns and refunds on custom items such as these.  Please see "warranty" tab above for more information.

Please allow about three weeks for receipt of your finished stone. We are confident that you'll feel it was worth the wait.
