Oui, Oui – Très Chic Name Necklace

I sported my first name necklace at the ripe age of three-years-old. While most kids were including stars, hearts & swirls on their designs – I was spelling out my full name. Perhaps my parents thought I was a genius, or simply a fashionista on the rise (I’m fine with either). The end result looked a lot like this:

I never claimed to be an artist.
 
23 years later, I still chic my name out at any opportunity. The ironic part is, I’m not even that wild about it (I wish it was more romantic & much more French). But I still love the idea of personalization – of being able to make something completely customizable to you. I was recently an attendee at a favorite things party a friend hosted. The concept is for every guest to bring 6 items of their favorite thing. From there, you draw names & exchange gifts. The kicker is that your gift has to be on or around $5. I know, right? What a challenge.
 
Unfortunately, the $5 ceiling eliminated my chances of being able to Oprah everyone in the room by telling them to look under their chair for my true favorite thing – a name necklace. I’m talking about my very own “YOU get a name necklace, and YOU get a name necklace” moment. How wonderful would that be? Luckily, that $5 limit was lifted as soon as the party was over. And I still have Christmas shopping left to do. This year, I’m loving Best Personalized Jewelry‘s collection.
 
My favorite piece is their 18K Rose Gold plated Carrie name necklace (ala Sex & The City). In fact, I thought it was so lovely that I requested one of my own. I couldn’t be happier with it and can’t wait to wear it this holiday season. For those of you still looking for the perfect gift, Best Personalized Jewelry  is offering a limited-time 20% discount on all items. Simply enter the coupon code “gift20″ and you’re set.

  1. I love my name necklace! Personally I went for sterling. Gold is not in the budget and gold plated may look nice when new but it will wear off over time.
