Hi, friends! I was reading the wonderful Daybook blog a few weeks ago (love me some Daybook) and saw an adorable Von Eshna initial necklace in one of Sydney's posts. It was love at first sight. The idea of getting some sort of special reminder of my precious little Parker had been casually floating around in my head for a few weeks--but seeing this necklace made things serious.
I began searching for the necklace. My necklace. The sort of necklace I can wear every day, with every outfit and every piece of jewelry. A hard task, but not impossible. ;) Here are a few of my favorites:
Here is the original Von Eshna necklace that caught my eye. I love it, but am having a hard time swallowing the $79.99 price.
I love this Von Eshna monogram necklace as well. Same price, very different.
I headed over to Etsy to check out my options there. Of course, I wasn't disappointed. I found this adorable little bow necklace from Maria Allen Jewelry. AND it's only $29. That's right, twenty-nine bucks. Yeah!
Another favorite was this dainty little leaf necklace with a simple stamped initial from CoCo Wagner Jewelry. I'm slightly obsessed. And the $28.00 price tag doesn't hurt either ;).
I love love love this simple one from Bluegrass Loft. Pure perfection! And it's the cheapest at $22.00...so tempting.
Another take on a leaf necklace is this pretty little thing from the shop, Dangling Jewelry, that is only $31.00. My only worry is that it's too girly. Is that irrational? I am a girl, after all....I just worry that since it's for Parker, he might be embarrassed by it. Yes, I suppose that's dumb.
Another great monogram option is this beauty which is a little less than the Von Eshna version at almost $50.00. I love it but can't decide if it's too....frilly. Yes? No?
And lastly (but not least-ly), is this super simple hand-stamped necklace from E. Ria Designs. Only $35.00 and definitely able to handle everyday life.
So, what do you think?? Which is your favorite and why? Is getting a pricier necklace worth it or should I go for something handmade? Have you seen any other goodies like these? Tell me, tell me! I need opinions.
Have a great day!
