Name Necklace and Random List

I've always wanted a personalized name necklace. So I asked my boyfriend if he'd get me one for my birthday (coming up next month) and he said yes. I thought it was greedy of me to ask for a gift, but he didn't mind, since it saves him the brainstorming. ;) Thanks bub!

So I narrowed my choices to these two...which do you guys like better? And why? I can't decide....do I want bling or no bling??? Is bling tacky? Or is no bling cheap-looking? Aaaaaaaaagh I can't decide! (Need to calm my ass down, it 'aint that serious.)

No Bling (3D Doube-Plated): I'm not sure what a double-plated thingy looks like, but I think I want a flat one. Can someone explain what double-plated is? Is it hollow inside???
With Bling in first letter only (I think the diamonds are real, but really low carat):
What do you guys think? I want it in 14K yellow gold, not white gold or silver. Silver makes me look so washed out. I'm a bit peeved they only make these in 14K. I'm not some snob that only wears 24K gold, but 14K looks a bit FAKE in my opinion, especially when used in flashy/gaudy designs. 18K woulda been nice, no?

Here's a short survey Chiara-chan asked us to post a while ago. The questions she came up with are so cute, just like her ;)

1. What's your favorite song? Why? - Too many to choose from. But I love 'King of Sorrow' by Sade and 'Wish I Didn't Miss You' by Angie Stone. I can relate to both songs, they describe certain chapters of my life to a T.

2. Favorite pizza topping? - I LOOOOOVE pepperoni. The less crispy the pepperoni is, the better! I could eat pepperoni on it's own all day everyday. Sweet, tangy, fatty, pig-foot-and-intestine goodness! LOL.

3. What was your favorite childhood passtime? - Reading. Nerdy as it sounds, it helped me 'escape', and as a kid, I felt the need to 'escape' a LOT. A lot of times during recess, instead of playing outside, I would sit on the floor in the corner of the library and read cook books and craft books.

4. If you could go back in time and change one thing, would you? What would it be? If not, why? - I wouldn't have given my heart away to certain people, because of the horrible things they did to it. I'm a loving person all the same, but after my last relationship, I am unable to trust people the same way.

I would love to get to know my fellow bloggers better, so if you want, please post your answers too! Hope everyone had a great weekend!


Re: Edit - I decided I like this script a lot better. No bling may be the way to go...

I love bling, but I'd have to go with the no bling one this time. I think plain gold looks nicer and classier, with the added diamonds it could seem fake... Just my two cents!
My bday is next month too! ^O^

i vote no bling since you're going with the gold. i think bling might be too much unless its paired with silver.

hey my favourite (or my ONLY? lol) childhood pasttime was reading too!

Great choice with no bling, it'll mix and match with everything! I think you saved your man a lot of hassle from figuring out what you wanted for bday ;) hehe

RYC: yeah im super exciting about going to Japan! I;m still waiting for my visa.. but recruiter assures me the certificate i need will come soon, so im just sitting n waiting. I'm such an impatient person, LOL!

i love these necklaces. i say no bling....

Vanessa said...

They are so cute! I like it without the bling...or how about with ALL the bling? HAHAHA

IRENE said...

i have one! but i just realized that i cant find it!!! haha i have to look for it now! :)

Chiara said...

I like the one in the edit :D I think simple looks the best. If you blinged it, it'd look better all blinged. :D

Yay, thanks for doing the tag, miss Aya :D

Tammy M said...

Aya, I like the last one in the edit the best...as with the bling, if you are gonna have it, it must ALL be bling!
3-D means two plates, connected in the middle with little points to make it seem boxy...not cute, imho.
The last one reminds me of the Carrie necklace from SATC...very throwback chic!

IRENE said...

hi aya! WALES is the brand of the palette. my friend was selling them so i just got it from her.. im not sure where she got it from.. but ive been watching youtube vids and i know they bought it off ebay and the seller is from hong kong! :)

i know what you mean about wales and cs palettes looking alike! im pretty sure they come from the same manufacturer! crazy!!

Tracy said...

i also pick the bling-less style. haha. it looks weird with just the one letter.

Vi Anne said...

double plated means that the metal has been coated with a thin layer of gold, twice. this prevents the jewelry from tarnishing twice as longer as the single plated ones.

ps. the no bling looks nicer, imo. :)

I like the new edited one. Bling is nice, but if you're going to wear this necklace all the time, it might be nice to have the classier no-bling look. :)

I prefer the script nameplate necklace. Personally, I'd check out http://www.wow-imports.com as they have a nicer and wider selection of name necklaces in silver and gold.
