Love Pendant personalized jewelry - Giveaway

July 7, 2016

Having personalized jewelry is always a great idea. Recently I found out about this newly launched jewelry company, Love Pendant. It was founded by the jewelry maker Robert Leser. Love Pendant offers a unique collection of engraved semi-precious gemstones that you can custom designed to make your own piece of jewelry.

The process of customization is very simple. First choose a necklace, bracelet or charm. Next choose the gemstone; topaz, amethyst, green quartz or citrine. Finally choose a symbol, letter or word that holds special significance to you. The gemstones are then set in the customer’s metal choice of vermeil, silver or 14k gold. 

I chose a beautiful necklace made with a Topaz gemstone with the symbol “Amor” that means “Love”.
