It seems to me that every time I turn around on the internet (okay... figuratively), I'm seeing a photo posted by another blogger or Pinterest-er of a personalized monogram necklace. In good old Minnesota, I think its safe to say that monogrammed jewelry isn't all that popular. In fact, I can only think of one person I know who has a piece of monogrammed jewelry. Despite the fact that I see her quite frequently, I've only noticed her wearing this piece twice. And her age is approaching 60. I share these little factoids with you mostly so that you can understand why, in addition to my inherent cheapness, I was not about to spend even the $25 it would cost to have a custom monogrammed necklace made, not to mention the exorbitant cost of a piece of fine jewelry. For a style I'm a little iffy about? Nope.
Score one for J.C. Penney in their deep discounts just before Christmas. Yay!
I recently rediscovered this little gem while I was trying to do some MUCH needed cleaning and organizing around here (more on that later) and pulled it out. So, for the first time in the 3 months I've owned this swirly monogrammed necklace, I decided to try it out.
