Merci Maman — prettiest hand engraved, personalised necklaces

Merci Maman

I don’t tend to wear a lot of jewellery, I actually don’t even have pierced ears! Every piece of jewellery I do own has some sentimental value. A little trinket bought on a holiday, or a present for a special occasion. Possibly not worth much, but very valuable to me nonetheless.

For our 10 year anniversary Esther, Courtney and I received a gift from the lovely brand Merci Maman. They are so special! A necklace with a little plaque that has 3 little xxx engraved on it, representing the 3 of us and the letter X in roman script. Super cute, right? And it is something we will always treasure, as it is a great memento of the adventure we embarked on together, ten years ago.

Merci Maman was founded 10 years ago (just like Babyccino!) by Beatrice, a French mom living in London. She started out engraving at her kitchen table, but now leads a team of 30. I love this story and the spirit behind it. Each plaque is unique, and has been hand-engraved with a personal message. Traditionally children in France received a gold plaque for their birthday or baptism, with the specific date engraved on it. I love this modern interpretation of this tradition.
