>Personalized Boutique engraved birthstone necklace *REVIEW and GIVEAWAY*

>Lil Family Blog is pleased to give our readers another exciting review and giveaway! This time from Personalized Boutique, an online store of personalized and custom jewelry!

The kind people at Personalized Boutique sent me a Sterling silver “Posh Mommy” engravable birthstone disc (size medium) on an 18″ chain, which I had engraved with Lilian’s name and birthday (my only child, so far!) It has a light green stone (peridot) inset below her name, for her birthstone (her birthday is August 13, it’s coming up!)

The necklace came in a black box that snapped close, suitable for gift giving!

The chain has a lobster claw clasp, which I always prefer for security.

And I had the reverse side engraved with Lilian’s birthday, it says 8.13.08

Here’s a photo of me wearing it (sorry, no face shot this time, my hair and make-up weren’t done, I’m sure you understand). It’s a really nice size, not too big to be gaudy, but not so small that you can’t read it. You have the option to get the letters filled with black enamel if you choose, but I chose mine without. (I wish Lilian had a prettier birthstone like a ruby or amethyst so the color would “pop” more, but peridot is nice too.)

I’m really impressed with the quality of the piece. It’s adorable and well made. It’s part of the Posh Mommy collection, which, according to the website was founded in 2007 by two stay-at-home moms from California. Posh Mommy has become a favorite with celebrity moms like Gwen Stefani, Salma Hayek & Brook Burke. Simple, fashionable and fun, this is definitely not your grandma’s “mommy jewelry'”!” In the collection are also adorable dog tags, rectangles, initial necklaces, circles, squares, and hearts. They are available in gold or silver, with or without birthstones, and in several different sizes. And since they aren’t in a strictly “baby” shape, they can be used for other purposes too. Get your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife’s name and birthstone and your anniversary on the reverse, get your child’s name like me, or get your pet’s name! You can even get your OWN name. Whatever means something to you.
Personalized Boutique has a huge collection of mother/family jewelry, some more traditional, and some more playful/modern like the Posh Mommy collection. And besides family jewelry they have nameplates, rings, and some really cute and unusual collections like the SNACK food collection (pendants shaped like Goldfish and Cheese-It crackers), the SKULL collection, and my favorite, the CUPCAKE collection! There is something for everyone.
