You may see them everywhere like I do. Around the necks of friends, sisters, coworkers. That little pendant, perhaps a circle, gold or sliver with an initial on it. The mommy necklace I call them. The initial of course, is the first letter of her darling kiddo's name - and there may have two or five little pendants on one chain.
I do not have one.
I want one...but I'm not sure if I want that kind. How should I keep my kiddo close to my heart, on my body every day? (I have been tempted for a nano-second to get a tattoo. Yes, I was staring at Angelina Jolie's tattoo of the latitude and longitude of her kids' birthplaces. And then I realized that I wanted her toned arms, not the tattoo...but I digress.) Made me hunt for a few other options -- I found three options over at Etsy, as I wanted to keep it under about $50.
Option 1: Ring, ring, ring. Nope, not the telephone, folks, but a ring. I could do this cute little one with her initial, slim, lovely. Or these stacked ones, with her whole name or all three initials stamped.
Option 2: Cuff ‘em , Dano. I wear a few bracelets every day, why not add another one with her name or birthday or something? I love this stamped cuff that boldly displays it, or how about this one with it hidden on the inside?
Option 3: Necklace with a Twist. Okay, if I do want to go the necklace route, how about something a little different. Maybe rectangle instead of a circle pendant This one has her birthday in Roman numerals (so cool, right?), and this one has the birthday in three lines and comes in copper, brass or aluminum. A little different, yet still classic.
Do you have a mommy necklace, with initials or birthstones? Any of these strike your fancy?
