    1. A custom name necklace to help you live out your Carrie Bradshaw fantasies. And just like that... you're chic!,

    Promising review: "Very good quality! The necklace is lightweight but cheap—best of both worlds. My skin is usually sensitive to jewelry but I have had no issues with this necklace. The gold color is nice and shiny, very eye catching. Font 4 is a good dupe for the Carrie necklace from Sex and the City which is what I was looking for. I like how you can preview the different fonts before purchase to give you a decent idea of what the necklace will look like." —J. Bitts
