When it comes to surprising people, you’re a natural. Between your thoughts of the day and latest flavor of the week, you’ve always got something good up your sleeve.
And with the help of jeweler Olivia Gallander, that something could soon be around your neck. Her new line features dog tags and coins stamped with phrases ranging from the cheeky (“You are loved”) to the mantra-like (“Do one thing that scares you every day”) to the meditative (“Dwell in the possibility”).
Don’t fret over the smallish selection that you might find in-store. The designer keeps the premade pieces to a minimum to encourage us to indulge in customized options.
Choose from chains and charms in silver, rose, or yellow gold, or mix it up for something that’s truly yours. Plus, Gallander always throws in a special touch when finishing a piece — a fleur-de-lis here, a tiny glass bead there — to ensure that each necklace remains a real one-of-a-kind.
Just like you.
