The way things are going in the world these days, I’m thinking that the right message for message jewelry is peace. In which case there’s the cheap silver pendant that you got on the street for $18 (and lasted a few weeks) and then there’s this beautiful gold vermeil stamped peace sign necklace from one of our favorite jewelry artisans, TJ Kelley.
While shiny as all heck, I love the slight rough-hewn feeling this necklace gets from the stamping. Because if there’s one thing about a peace sign pendant, it should never be pretentious. I mean if you’re going to spend 10K on some designer blingie thing, just give the money to a peace charity, right? –Liz
