As a general rule, "family" jewelry (mother's rings and necklaces where a birthstone represents each child/grandchild) is hideous. The idea, however, is quite good. I'm all about jewelry having meaning to the wearer, but it has to be pretty too, right? This custom necklace is meaningful and pretty. The two rings signify the union of marriage and four little diamonds twinkle, one for each little darling in the family. It's wonderfully classic with a long opera length chain that adds a modern twist.
