I received products, services or tickets to an event mentioned in this post free of charge in return for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I would use personally and any opinions expressed are my own.
Whilst I and most other mothers will say the joy of Christmas is spending time with our families and seeing the excitement on our children’s faces; no one can deny that a gift is nice, especially when it’s personal and well thought out.
One such gift that I have coveted for quite some time is a necklace from Merci Maman. I’m not sure exactly when they first came on my radar but they first crafted a bracelet in 2007 and their website launched in 2008 and I don’t feel it would’ve been too long after. I was so attracted to the simplistic design with neatly handwritten personalisation engraved into each piece. Of course, I wasn’t the only one attracted to their classic design and they really shot into the limelight in 2013 when Kate Middleton was spotted wearing their necklace, now named ‘The Duchess’ engraved with Prince George’s name.
Still looking myself, I kept coming back to Merci Maman on top of my love for their designs which appeared to have the quality to stand the test of time was another draw, they had a number of pieces that could hold all four of the children’s names.
Clearly, however, I didn’t hint hard enough at my desire for this item and it felt like something that should be gifted and not bought for myself, so it wasn’t until this year when I met with Merci Maman that they kindly suggested I share a piece that I felt had been made for us even before they further personalised it.
The ‘We are Family’ Necklace feels like it perfectly connects with the name I chose for the blog, I now get to wear that message surrounded by my children’s names as a little symbol that they have one another as we have them. I love that it’s in a circle, a symbol of endless love which like a circle has no beginning or end.
The necklace was more than worth the wait and has more than met my expectations. Displayed in a beautiful keepsake box and tied with a ribbon the 18k gold plated necklace has a high quality feel and a nice weighty feel whilst still being delicate and oh so pretty. Its simple design means it can be worn with just about anything which is perfect because I never want to be without it.
