The whole sideways cross trend has been going on for a while now. I first saw it on Kelly Ripa and then nearly every celebrity was wearing one! I have always wanted to purchase one but couldn't find one that was unique and that I loved completely! I always browse through Etsy because I LOVE the idea of being able to purchase vintage, handmade and made with love items that are supporting smaller businesses or in some cases, stay at home mommies :) Why would I get this necklace from a department store when I could probably find it on Etsy and put a little money in someone's pocket directly?
I found this necklace on Etsy and it is everything I ever wanted ! 18K Gold plated and even includes a personalized element--I fell for it immediately, and at under $70 it was a no brainer, this was what I had been waiting around for! haha (Sounds like a love story with my darn necklace right?! lol)
Here are a few photos of my new favorite accessory:
The Names on the necklace are my long time boyfriends and my own--The fact that we have the same number of letters in our names, I wasn't sure that it would work, but Jean, the seller made it work beautifully! I am SO happy with how it came out. The chain falls a little below my collar bone which is perfect because almost no matter what top I am wearing, it can be seen!
My reasoning for getting this necklace is not only because it is a trendy gorgeous piece, but for something a little more sentimental. As a Christian, I thought this was a wonderful way to be a constant reminder to live in my relationship with Gerard in a Godly, positive, loving way and ultimately- God and our faith is what will hold our love together :) Call me a sap, but that's just what this reminded me of which made it even more special!
If you would like to get one of these for yourself or as a gift (I'm sure these would make excellent gifts!) here is the sellers info as well as a direct link to the Etsy page.
