I love these state necklaces by Maya Brenner. At the moment I’d be torn between Wisconsin and Illinois—-with my family’s WI lake house & 24 years of living in IL my past, present, and future are really in both states. Beautiful pieces—-the little diamond (which you can specially place anywhere along the state lines!) adds some gorgeous sparkle. Maybe this will be good for when I live in Europe some day; something special just for American (temporary expatriate?) me. Love the letter necklaces, too! For now it’s just fun (and a little bit torturous) to look.

  1. Love this idea! This would be a great graduation gift for other women — embarking a new start at a college or a new job. 🙂

  2. I’m still craving Illinois badly. (But ahhh, the price!)

    I really like JoAnn’s idea about gifting it to someone starting over in a new state. I have a friend who just moved to Jersey, and this would have been such a fun present for her!

  3. These are so cute, and I’m with Joann: they would make great graduation gifts!

  4. I love these! I’m totally getting the Illinois one when I finally make the move to Wisconsin!

    p.s. I’m hopefully going to be in Milwaukee next weekend…if you’re around I’d love to get together!

  5. I love these too. If only I didn’t live in the most boring shaped state. Haha. It’s really hard to justify buying a plain square shaped necklace.

  6. super cute. yeah, my friend Ingrid has a necklace shaped like Guadeloupe to remind her of home
