Meridane Designs Review and Giveaway

Every so often I come across something so unique, I know it has to be featured on my blog. Meridane Designs fits that description perfectly! I don't review a ton of jewelry, but I knew I had to review this necklace! First, let me show you a picture of it:

There are different variations of this pendant, as well as necklace and earring versions. Isn't is unique and interesting? It gets even more unique when you hear the story behind this lovely piece of jewelry.

One fine day, Sally Short decided to doodle. I know I have my doodling moments and I sure wish I could have come up with something this creative! She wrote out "Love is all U need" all stacked on top of each other. That was the beginning of the What U Love Symbol. She redefined this symbol until it became what you see above. She even added a peace symbol - my kind of lady!

What is even more amazing about this piece of art is that it doesn't just say Love is all U Need, it can say anything you want it to say. If you look closely you can see every letter of the alphabet and numbers too! Look into this pendant and let it tell you what you need it to! I think that is amazing. Check out the hidden letters:

Gift Card Included with purchase (Back Side)

Isn't that unique, adorable and sentimental all wrapped up into one? I like to call my pendant a piece of art , because I feel it truly is. I am not a big jewelry person and always prefer something simple, so this is perfect for me! Every single time I have worn my necklace out and about I have received comments from people about where I got it and what it says! That really says something about this pendant and the message that started it all!

My pendant came with a dog tag chain that can be cut to size, which I really liked and the pendant itself is made out of sterling silver. You can also purchase a gold symbol, as well as symbols with the following stones in the middle: amethyst, onyx, carnelian, citrine, crystal sphere, druzy, garnet, lapis, moonstone, peacock pearl, peridot, turquoise, and white pearl! They all sound gorgeous and look even more gorgeous. Check out all of the different necklace pendants here.

Like I said up above, they also have bracelets and earrings! Do you want a custom piece of jewelry? Meridane Designs can do that for you! Check it out.

This is a darling company with truly fabulous customer service. It was amazing to get to work with them!
