Carrie from the tv series Sex in the city wears her name on her gold necklace. Since then many women have copied this style and turned it into quite a fashion statement. Many names are quite common and these name plates are readily available from jewellers. There are some online stores where you can type in your name and have a necklace made to the length you want with your name cut from a solid gold plate. Being able to order a custom made plate means that any name is possible, rather than what a jeweller may carry in their regular stock.
As these name plates are individually made you can choose to have any word turned into gold necklaces with the chain style you prefer. You may wish to have your star sign as a word instead of the symbol as a pendant. The choices are only limited by your imagination.
