I love Merci Maman I do. I have often drooled over friends jewellery from there, and I am a regular stalker of their page – on many an occasion I have put items in my shopping basket during my fantasy shopping moments. So, as you can imagine I was absolutely over the moon when they offered to send me one of their Duchess necklaces to review. Spotted on none other than Kate Middleton (a.k.a the Duchess of Cambridge) I couldn’t wait to get my slightly less royal mitts on this one.
And I wasn’t disappointed.
The Duchess necklace features a number of charms, all personal to you. I chose a sterling silver finish on a long chain, but you can also select a long chain or a gold plated finish. My necklace depicts our family – there are 2 little boy charms and one girl to represent Gemma, Jacob and Max. The main pendant is engraved with their names, and their dates of birth on the reverse side. The small heart charm is big enough for an initial – I chose a K to represent my husband.
The little charms are beautiful – they don’t detract from the main pendant, they simply enhance it. The necklace is so very personal to me, and I wear it with pride, keeping my family close to my heart at all times .I have had compliment after compliment on this necklace – every parent in the school playground wants one of their own. It would make a gorgeous gift – maybe a present for a new mum?
If you fancy getting your hands on your very own Duchess necklace then I have just the giveaway for you – as one lucky winner will receive their own personalised Duchess necklace too!
