Jewelry Should Hold Meanings: ONecklace

July 1, 2018


I go through phases with jewelry, sometimes I love them and sometimes I can’t bear to take time to wear any! Can you feel me? But I found myself always wearing some form of necklace, regardless of how I am feeling and how much time I have to get ready. Without even double thinking it, I would reach for a necklace to wear after getting ready, feeling naked if I go without one. And that got me to think about jewelry and how why I am especially drawn towards some certain pieces in my jewelry collection.



People always say to invest in high-quality pieces of jewelry and jewelry that will last through the generations. And while I heeded that advice, I have been realizing that I am more drawn towards pieces that hold a certain meaning. I resonate and return to pieces that embrace some meaning, memory or date. Everyone ask about the rings on my fingers, and they never come off because I got them from my parents so they mean so much to me. I always wear certain necklaces because they all have a certain memory with them or because I got them on a special day. In essence, they all hold special meanings and they represent a certain part of my life.



When ONecklace reached out to me to work together on a collaboration, I was SO excited to see the line of work they did. They focus on customized pieces, which really fell in line with my love of meaningful pieces. And I had the opportunity to customize another meaningful piece with the help of ONecklace. I was able to customize every single part of the necklace, from the material to the chain type and the result was exactly what I wanted!



When presented with the choice of gold and silver, I still lean towards gold. Even though I love mixing the two metals! I chose the ROMAN NUMERAL DATE NECKLACE in 24K Gold Plating, with 14’ length and in a rolo chain style. As for my written customization part, I chose a really special date: Alex and mine’s anniversary date! I have actually wanted something like this for a while and have been looking at several places from independent Etsy shops to department stores. None of them really honed in the specifics that I wanted until I saw this piece at ONecklace. I especially like that it’s in roman numerals because personally i think it makes pieces look more sophisticated and romantic. I am in love with the end result and I haven’t stopped wearing it since receiving it. If you are looking for a high-quality piece that is customizable, I definitely recommend checking out ONecklace! They also have a variety of different jewelry pieces beyond necklaces that you can choose from and easily customize.


A million and one thanks for reading — until my next lil’ thought then!
