I don’t owe a lot of jewelry. I used to but over the years I have given some of it away or tossed out the junky stuff.
When I was younger I wouldn’t leave the house without earrings, bracelets, necklace and/or rings. I always felt like jewelry was the finishing touch to any look.
These days I am a busy mom. I’m lucky if I wear make up or do my hair let along wear jewelry. I do have a few signature pieces that I wear often and a few fancy pieces that I wear to events. For the most part I just wear a simple necklace to finish off an outfit.
The pieces that I do wear all have meaning to me. For example, I have a ring that belonged to my mom that I wear on my pinky sometimes (it’s too small for my ring finger). I also have a bracelet that I gave to my mom for Christmas one year. When she passed away I got it back because I loved that bracelet and I was so happy to be able to give it to my mom.
I love to wear “mom” jewelry – jewelry that has my children’s names, birthdates and/or birthstones on it. I even include my husband whenever possible because I love him just as much as my children.
I love to wear “mom” jewelry because I feel like I carry a little bit of my husband and kids around with me when I am wearing it. It’s like a special connection between me and my family.
I recently received a beautiful necklace to review from JC Jewelry Design. I was sent to review a lovely necklace with a hand stamped charm that reads “love you to the moon and back”. It’s pictured at the top of this post.
According to the JC Jewelry Design website;
This necklace has the popular quote, ‘love you to the moon & back’, hand stamped on a round sterling silver (5/8 inch) pendant. A solid 925 sterling silver heart charm is also added to it. The round pendant is brushed and polished for a natural and organic look.
Also included with the charm is a beautiful heart shaped charm. The heart is see through so if it finds it’s way in front of the stamped charm you can still read what the charm says.
If you would like to personalize the necklace you can add Swarovski Crystal Pearl and/or Swarovski crystal birthstones. You can add one for each of your children (or grandchildren) or even the birthstone of your significant other. Or you can simple add them to add a little color to the necklace.
My necklace as three birthstones – Diamond (April), Emerald (May) and Sapphire (September). Each one represents the birthstone of my children and my husband. JC Jewelry Design has birthstone charms for every month.
I like that there are a variety of chain lengths available. I have a thick neck so I need at least an 18″ (I prefer 20″). You can also get 16″ or 14″ (ideal for children).
This is a lovely necklace. It’s not too bold or outlandish. It’s the perfect piece of jewelry to wear while running errands, working, or even on a night out on the town.
JC Jewelry Design carries other lovely pieces of jewelry including pieces in gold. They even have gifts for men. I personally like the hand stamped personalized money clip. My husband uses a wallet, but my father uses a money clip. That would make a great Father’s Day gift for him.
The personalized hand stamped guitar picks would also make a great gift.
I LOVE the Peas in a Pod jewelry. They are so cute!
