My Name Is...

When my parents got married, someone gave my mum a necklace with her name on it. I remember her wearing it a lot while I was growing up and I loved it. Unfortunately, I could never take it (like I took most of her other jewellery) because we don't have the same name.
But since I was a little girl, I've always wanted my own necklace with my name on it.

So when I came across mynamenecklace, I just knew I had to have one. When they offered to send a necklace to review, I couldn't say no! My Name Necklaces specialise in hand made personalised necklaces, like the one worn by Sarah Jessica Parker's 'Carrie' on SATC.

It came through the post at 8am and was probably one of the best ways to start the day. It was perfectly packaged and the box it came in was very cute and definitely got me all excited.

And the necklace itself, well just have a look at how pretty it it. Seriously, this photo does not do it justice!

The necklace is Sterling Silver and has my name written beautifully, along with a gorgeous silver chain. It is exquisitely made and is definitely something I would treasure always. Its quite a delicate piece of jewellery, so definitely fits in well with all my other jewellery.
I wore it the second I got it and got compliments on it when I wore it out. Even my brother, who rarely shows any type of emotion, said how beautiful it was.
Personally, I love this necklace and I know its something that I can keep and wear for years to come.

Overall, I would give this necklace a top rating! It is really pretty and well made. There are very few pieces of jewellery that are really personal, but a named necklace is one of those and no matter what, I know that it'll always be mine.

EDIT: Thought I'd add a picture of how it looks on me as well.

A named necklace is a perfect piece of jewellery to have. Its something that is personal, but at the same time, somthing that you'd want to show everyone.
So if you're stumped for ideas for what to get someone, why not a personalised named necklace from my name necklace.

Oh that's gorgeous, I love the font! I have an 'H' necklace and an 'H' brooch, but maybe I need to invest in something with the other six letters on it as well!

We all need our own Carrie necklace!

Couture Cookie said...

It looks very cute! For a while, I wanted nothing to do with necklaces like this - they were so Carrie, and all the ghetto chicks in NY had them. But how can you resist something beautiful like this one... I love the packaging as well! It had me at hello!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Gorgeous necklace! I would love to get one with my middle name. It's more unique and way cooler than Jennifer. Haha. :)

Pretty! I like the idea of a name necklace now that enough time has passed from the original TV series. It looks really pretty, too! :)

Couture Carrie said...

So gorgeous, darling S!

I have an uncommon first name, so it was never possible to find a name necklace (or fridge magnet, or pen, or teddy bear) with my name on it! I love this idea!

Looks beautiful!


Hi,taht's so sweet, very avant-garde.

Gorgeous necklace! I loved hearing about how your mom had one so you always wanted one!! It makes the necklace that much more special. I used to have a wire name necklace when was little. But i don't know what has become of it these days

Hey Sherin, thanks for the comment you left on my blog about the blogger meet up! I'm going to start planning it soon... But don't know whether to do something small & personal, or something much larger? What was the one you went to in the summer like?

LOVE that necklace, it's beautiful! How much did it cost? I might have to buy one!

♥ Hannah

Oh my, your ID/name necklace is so pretty! You lucky, lucky girl! :)

I also have an ID necklace in gold which I had it made for me a few years ago. Haven't thought of showing it yet on my blog. Will show it to you soon in one of my future posts.:)
