This Wearable Signature Is the New Carrie Necklace
It’s been years since Carrie Bradshaw first caught our eyes with her famous nameplate necklace. No matter how long it’s been, we’re still in awe of it. But finding a piece of jewelry that boasts your name in the perfect cursive font can be super difficult, if not impossible for some. Unless you turn to Brevity. Launched in 2007 by Anna Corpron, Brevity is a jewelry company that sticks to its name, keeping all of the pieces simple and to the point (hence the name). And the absolute coolest part of this basic, understated line is, by far, its signature collection. We’re not talking signature like iconic or characteristic, we’re talking signature like your name written in cursive on all of your checks and important docs.
By simply capturing your signature and uploading it to their website, you can create a bracelet, necklace or keychain donned with your own John Hancock. They recommend you sign your name five times on a piece of paper and either pick the best one yourself or let them do the choosing. Once you upload and email it to them, they’ll get back to you with proofs to make sure you like what you see. And just in case names aren’t your thing, or if you’re looking to display something different, you can pretty much write anything in cursive, upload it and turn it in to one of the styles they sell. Not sure about you, but we can certainly think of a few cute words to turn into jewelry… “Maker,” anyone?
Brevity’s signature pieces start at $195, which gets you the most basic version of each style in sterling silver. The prices go all the way up to almost $2,000 for 14k gold. And although that might seem like a hefty price tag for a tiny piece of jewelry, can we really put a price on the closest thing we’ve found to Carrie Bradshaw’s coveted necklace since the ’90s? Yeah, we didn’t think so.
