I love my children’s names. They fit their personalities so well, and they rhyme! I even have a tattoo on my foot of my first son’s name and newborn footprint! So when it comes to jewelry, you can bet that I love anything with their names or initials. So when I got the chance to feature and review a necklace from POSH Mommy Jewelry, I jumped at the opportunity! I have several friends that have their jewelry, and I have been a fan from afar, let’s say.
I did a LIVE Instagram unboxing for POSH Mommy, where I shared my initial thoughts and showed my followers what to expect when they open their boxes. For my feature and review, I received the Initial Disc Necklace, with two disc’s (one for each of my boys), with a spacer bead in the middle to help with rubbing. My chain is their adjustable cable chain, which is their signature chain (known for both its strength and design).
Here’s what I found in my box:
–Cinch bag (suuuuuper soft) with company’s logo (necklace nestled safely inside for shipping and presentation)
–Chain Necklace with Discs pressed in plastic (I did not get photographs of this because I opened everything on my live Instagram unboxing, so I’m really sorry, mamas!). Font used: Tanner.
–Business Card with all of POSH Mommy Jewelry’s social media accounts and contact info
Here’s a close up of my necklace:
I couldn’t resist putting it on my Christmas tree!
During my live unboxing, I had an unexpected reaction that was, I guess…a little embarrassing. As I unwrapped the beautiful sterling silver discs engraved with my son’s first initials, a thought came to mind that I often push away. Before my second son was born, my husband and I suffered a miscarriage. The pregnancy was still early on, so we didn’t know the sex of the baby yet, but I dreamt of our child night after night. It was a baby girl. We struggled through the misery of losing a child after trying for a year and a half, so we named her, and began to mourn just as I found out I was pregnant again.
To remember our daughter, I had a necklace engraved with her name, a pearl bead, and a wing for our sweet angel baby.
Unboxing that necklace immediately brought me back to her memory. I don’t talk often about her because I’m sure it is difficult to understand for other people – but this necklace and its simple beauty brought some tears. That is another story for another day, but I felt the need to express that because I did receive a lot of love and messages after my unboxing that really touched me.
Thank you to each of you for your messages, I tried to individually message you back, and appreciate all of your thoughts!
Alrighty, here are my genuine thoughts…
I loved opening the packaging – from the jewelry cinch bag (HELLO STOCKING STUFFER!) within the gift box, to the way the discs were separated and displayed next to one another while sealed in plastic – there is some great attention to detail. If I gave one of their necklaces as a gift, I would feel assured that the recipient would feel really special opening their gift, and would have every opportunity to take in its beauty and personalization.
I also appreciate the cleaning cloth inclusion – my youngest son has not been able to keep his fingers off my necklace, so it’s really nice to have that handy to wipe off any teeny tiny fingerprints!
Adjustable Cable Chain
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I often make jokes about being built like a 12-year-old (it’s true, I’ve seen the 5th graders at my son’s school, we are seriously about the same size…), so I am clearly a petite mom. That means my head, neck, and chest are smaller than the average mama – and being able to adjust the chain is a pretty big deal for me. I don’t want my discs to be in my bra, I want to display them proudly in a comfortable place on my chest, and this chain allows me to do just that! It falls perfectly on me.
If silver isn’t your thing, this style is also available in vermeil (thick, yellow gold plating), and 14K gold (white, yellow, or rose).
That’s right, you millennial moms – rose gold. YASSSSS.
Initial Discs (Tanner Font)
I originally favored the Block font, but decided to go with Tanner for a softer feel, and am glad I did! The letters are really defined, which I was afraid of losing after switching from Block font.
The discs are gorgeous and so shiny – they are just STUNNING when you open the plastic they are sealed in! I know I’ve already mentioned this, but I’m am just so pleased with POSH Mommy’s thoughtfulness when it comes to packaging. The fact that my two discs, while placed on the chain and ready to ship, were pressed into plastic to separate them. This allowed me to really take in the beauty of the engraved discs separately and together, and prevented any rubbing during delivery, assuring a safe and NEW necklace to be delivered to my doorstep.
I can’t get over that little bit of thoughtfulness of pressing them into plastic. POSH Mommy, whoever thought of that ‘little’ step on your team should get a raise! 😉
Wear & Tear
I have been wearing my necklace for quite a few days now, and I will say that my necklace, when cleaned with their provided cloth and taken off to sleep, looks just as beautiful as the day I received it. I love the spacer bead in the center to separate the discs and help with rubbing, HIGHLY RECOMMEND. While life happens, and eventually the discs will touch, this significantly decreases the amount of contact the discs have, ensuring your purchase lasts as long as possible.
I would ABSOLUTELY gift this to anyone who loves personalized gifts (I mean, really….who doesn’t??).
Not only is this a GREAT gift for mamas, this can be wonderful for sisters, friends, wives, or even dog mamas! This holiday season, POSH Mommy Jewelry is accepting Engrave only pieces just like my Initial Disc Necklace in this post until December 14th (with standard shipping!)
