Mommy Keepsake

Who can forget when our beloved Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City reintroduced the nameplate necklace?  Now jewelry designers are reintroducing a new line of vanity symbols to satisfy those former S & C fans who are embracing motherhood…

A dear friend and fellow mom recently gave me the 18k gold round pendant pictured below from Me&Ro.  I chose a favorite photo of my daughter and Me&Ro sized and re-touched it for the pendant.  The photo is carefully set behind a cabochon cut natural rock crystal quartz and hangs on an 18-inch 18k gold chain.  It is a piece that will definitely stay in our family for generations to come.

    Nice round up! The calendar is special. You overlooked I have a 14k gold small pendant with an imprint of my son’s fingerprint. On the back his name and birthday engraved. It’s amazing. Also , check out for custom initial pendants that are fabulous.

    I am a big fan of this sterling silver photo pendant:

    This is a great a quality product and a cheaper option if you know how to crop and retouch your own photos.

    I like compared to Starfieldbay just seems more modern and higher end to me – personal preference I guess :)

  6. I always inspired by you, your thoughts and way of thinking, again, thanks for this nice post.
