Jewellery with meaning: personalised necklace & pendants by Hersey & Son… & giveaway!

Hersey & Son Silversmiths Zodiac charm collection

For anyone who has ever received a piece of jewellery from a loved one, be it a family heirloom, engagement ring (or maybe even one half of a ‘BFF’ heart pendant) knows it holds a significance far more meaningful than it’s actual financial worth. 

Jewellery can tell a story and holds the power to become a statement of who we are & what we hold dear. 

Yes, jewellery, when it has meaning, is something to treasure indeed.   

Which is why I took time to consider (and had much fun deciding) which beautiful charms to pick from the Hersey & Son pendant collection*.  I wanted to build the most meaningful necklace possible.

My thoughts on my Hersey & Son necklace…

I was kindly invited to pick from their new collection of Zodiac charms*.  As well as being able to select a Birthstone & Initial charm necklace.   I selected a mixture of what reflected me, namely my initial and also the zodiac sign and birthstone of people who mean the world to me.  A personal mixture of self-empowerment & holding close what means most.

The sterling silver charm necklace arrived in an attractive presentation box with tissue paper inside – I was thrilled to unwrap my necklace & chosen charms.  Helpfully Hersey & Son provided care instructions and a complimentary cleaning cloth to help keep my necklace looking lovely for longer. 

As soon as my necklace was on, I felt connected to it.  I guess that’s naturally what happens when you own jewellery with meaning attached to it.  It’s such a versatile necklace and fits with a large array of outfits.  Plus I find it’s perfectly suitable for daily wear as well as night’s out.

With a variety of charms, I can customise the necklace whenever I want.  So I can remove charms just to have a one-charm necklace or mix & match as I see fit.  Which ultimately makes it highly wearable for a number of occasions.

In my personal opinion, Hersey & Son’s collaboration with a talented jewellery designer has worked really well creating elegant & sophisticated charms. 

Who would I recommend these charm necklaces to?

Well, my daughter has certainly got her eyes on my necklace.  Thankfully they offer a child-size chain so I wouldn’t need to make my daughter wait too long for one of her own.  I have received positive comments from friends in all age brackets, so they do hold multi-generational appeal.
