Go for the gold

Have I ever mentioned how much I adore EmersonMade? First, there were the ridic flower pins:

Then, the E.M. clothing line and clutches:

Emerson’s spring collection is just about to hit. We love this little jacket, no?

But just yesterday, I saw that EmersonMade is now selling six darling gold coin necklaces.

I love these because — don’t laugh — they remind me of my grandmother. For as long as I can remember, she has collected antique coins and turned them into necklaces. Though these babies aren’t antiques, they’re oh-so appropriate for the younger girl about town. The necklaces have a feminine, updated look that’s just lovely. It’s glamour with the grandma touch. Glamma.

Each coin is engraved with a little saying in Latin. My picks? Either the lion (“FIDUCIA, VIRTUS, AMPLITUDO” — “Confidence, Courage, Nobility of Soul”) or the dragonfly (“aut viam inveniam aut faciam” — “I shall either find a way or make a way.”)

    I am loving their clothing. Every piece looks like it was made to last – nothing too trendy. Might have to pick something out for myself!
