I love my family so much, and there is nothing that makes me happier than having a constant reminder of them with me at all times. I am so proud of my husband and my sons that showing that pride off to the world is one of the most satisfying experiences in my life. And when I can express my love and pride in the form of an elegant piece of jewelry, well…then I am just in heaven.
The Pretty Peacock is a wonderful boutique specializing in custom-made, personalized jewelry that is perfect for inscribing with the names or phrases that deserve to be forever remembered. I was recently lucky enough to review one of the site’s best-selling pieces, the stunning Regal Family Tier.
One of the things that make The Pretty Peacock so special is the high level of customization that is offered. Rather than just printing a name on a piece of jewelry, the store offers tons of options on every piece so that the jewelry is truly original and perfectly suited to the wearer. Customizing my own perfect piece was so much fun!
The Regal Family Tier consists of three silver discs of graduating size. I decided to put the names of my two sons on the largest disc, my and my husband’s names on the middle disc and the word “love” on the smallest disc. The piece also features a birthstone that hangs in the center of the smallest disc, and I pondered for a while about what stone to choose for my necklace. I finally took a great idea off the website and used the April birthstone to symbolize the month of my marriage.
After determining the words and stone for my piece, I was able to further customize the necklace by combining a smooth finish on the smallest and largest discs with a hammered finish on the center disc. With my creation complete, the only thing I had left to do was eagerly wait for my necklace to arrive.
The necklace was packaged beautifully in a small tissue-paper-wrapped box, complete with a peacock feather adorning the top. I unwrapped it carefully and pulled out the personalized necklace. It was, quite simply, stunning. Zackary and Benjamin’s names circled the bottom of the largest disc with a small dot separating them, and my name was separated from Curtis’s with a small heart. The curved bowl shape of the discs looked incredibly elegant and made the necklace very comfortable to wear, and the silver chain that the discs hung from was so stylish.
I put the necklace on immediately and loved how it dressed up my look. Since I received the Royal Family Tier, it has been around my neck every single day. I have yet to find an outfit that doesn’t look fabulous with this timeless necklace, and I’ve developed the habit of rubbing the smooth, rounded back of the pendant with my thumb when I start to feel stressed or overwhelmed. It’s amazing how much that simple action helps me to relax and remember what is truly important in my life.
The Pretty Peacock also offers bracelets, necklaces and pieces for men, all made with the same loving care and attention to detail that makes every item in the shop so incredibly special. Far more than just jewelry, the pieces truly are treasures that are sure to be cherished for a lifetime.
The quality and beauty of the necklace I received from The Pretty Peacock is absolutely phenomenal. I love the combination of smooth and hammered silver, and the sparkling gemstone in the center of the necklace adds such a great touch of sparkle to the pendant. I can’t imagine any woman that wouldn’t love to have one of these beautiful pieces of personalized jewelry. For completely customizable personalized pieces that help keep the most important things in your life fresh in your mind and close to your heart, check out The Pretty Peacock for yourself. There’s no better way to show the world where your love lies.
