Several years ago, I was at a school trunk show and this cute Mom came by my table and she was wearing the most amazing gold link necklace with a gold tag with her initials stamped on it. I practically lunged at her begging to know where she purchased it. Her answer "some jeweler in NYC". She couldn't remember the name. I was crushed. Fast forward to Vogue September 2008 and I saw this. This is the same necklace!!!! I pounced on my computer and poured through the website and the necklaces were so expensive!! So, my hunt for the perfect gold disk necklace began...
This past year, I could not turn around without seeing the name Danielle Stevens plastered everywhere. She was selling very pretty, simple gold-filled versions of my necklace at reasonable prices. I opened a wholesale account and placed a "test" order for a simple gold disk pendant. After over a month, if finally arrived. The chain was not great and I had to switch it out with one of mine. I wore it every day for a few weeks and then it turned a sad shade of green. I was so annoyed and dropped it in the bottom of my jewelry box, never to see it again, hopefully.
So, now and then I go back to Jennifer Fisher's website and drool over the amazing charms and pendants. Even though most are out of my price range, a girl can dream.
Last Christmas, one of my friends was looking for a necklace for her niece. We poured over the internet, especially Etsy for a simple gold-filled disk with a pretty monogram. We both used to work at Tiffany & Co., so our expectation of engraving is pretty unrealistically high. We found this pendant online and it was $100!!! When it arrived, we were both pleasantly surprised at the quality and the monogramming. I am in the process of trying to secure this line for my own website..so stay tuned!
