Personalized Name Necklaces from

Ever since Carrie Bradshaw elevated the name necklace from mall-kiosk kitsch to catwalk couture, I have wanted one of these silly things for myself. So when I was asked to review a sample necklace from, I jumped at the opportunity. I requested the aptly named "Carrie" style name necklace in sterling silver with a 16" long chain, and it's practically perfect. (How can a necklace with my name on it not be perfect?) The font is just right, there are no sharp edges, and the proportions are exactly as I had hoped.

If you're feeling nostalgic for the '90s, pick up your own personalized name necklace for $29.95 on sale (reg. $39.95) at

while i don't think my name would look right, your name looks awesome and has just the right proportions!

also, i designed a name necklace for a friend in college at a jeweler with my own handwriting. sure it was thoughtful, but had this website been around, i could have saved myself lots of cash.

Did you order the "Small Sterling Silver" or just the regular "Sterling Silver"???

I was just about to order one and noticed the "small" version is a bit cheaper but I don't want the lettering to be really small. In your pictures, however, it looks plenty big if you did happen to order the small one. Pleasseeeee let me know. Thank you so much. I've been wanting one of these forever and its my perfect graduation gift to myself :-)

Same question: Are you wearing the small sterling silver $29.95 one or the regular?

Love it!
