Monday Morning Must-Have

While on Martha’s Vineyard the week before last, I picked up a gold disc intitial necklace and have worn it non-stop. It wasn’t terribly expensive, which is sort of the point. It’s a fun memento from the summer of 2015, kind of like a rope bracelet, etc.

I bought one by Jennifer Tuton—it’s tiny and on a short-ish chain.

  • Preston, what a lovely photograph!

    As a Chilmark summer “lifer”, I’m curious to know which shop sells these – I don’t often shop on Island – and if perhaps you recall if they are made in sterling silver? Many thanks for any details you may provide.

  • I love these types of necklaces, they’re so delicate and I love having my initials on my accessories 🙂

  • a copy of Helen Ficholora – hers are 14 carat and timeless

  • I don’t like that Helen Ficalora’s look like dog tags, and I wanted something much less expensive. It’s a souvenir.

  • I bought mine at Juliska in Vineyard Haven.

  • A special piece of timeless elegance that you will have forever. Love it!

  • Super cute and classic. I wear Helen Ficalora as well. Added bonus – she donates to charity on behalf of a former co-worker of mine who passed away of breast cancer. I like that.

  • I bought a similar one with the name and latitude/longitude coordinates of our tiny beach town and gave it to my daughter today for her birthday. Love it.
