Keep a Special Place Close to Your Heart with the Maps Necklace
By: Caitlin Bezy
The Maps collection by A. Jaffe has become the most recent craze in personalized jewelry. The collection allows a tiny map of any address in the world to be engraved onto a pendant which can be worn and cherished for years to come. Commemorate the place where he proposed, the hole-in-the-wall restaurant where you had your first date, or the house you grew up in. The possible locations are infinite, introducing to most personal piece of jewelry as well as the perfect gift for a loved one.
My husband, Daniel, and I met back in high school. We were friends for years before we ended up together. Then one day, everything clicked. It’s been five years since that day and we have been happily together ever since. We got married earlier this year on Valentine’s Day. We chose to have our celebration in downtown Detroit, a city that has always held a special place in both of our hearts. After all, we had our very first date in Detroit!
On the morning of our wedding day, the flower girl rang my doorbell and had in her hands a personalized Maps by A. Jaffe necklace. I couldn’t believe my eyes – I had been wanting a necklace from this collection for so long. Daniel had mapped the exact location where we would shortly say “I do” on the front of the necklace and on the back he engraved the words “All of my love for all of my life. Daniel 2.14.16”. The necklace is hands down the sweetest gift I have ever received. I absolutely cherish it and I am ecstatic to have it as a reminder of our love forever.
The exceptional piece of jewelry comes in sterling silver, rose gold, white gold, and yellow gold. A small diamond marks the spot, placed on the exact location our special place. The pendant comes in a multitude of shapes, as well – circle, heart, and rectangle. The pendants can also be wrapped with a diamond border to add an extra sparkle.
I have helped countless customers pick out their perfect map so that they can enjoy theirs as much as I love mine. A piece from this collection is a great purchase in every way: The starting price point is completely approachable at $125 for a silver disk, making it a great gift or a unique purchase for yourself. There is even a charm bracelet so that you can add a new spot for each milestone! Come in to Tapper’s and, within a few short weeks, you can have your very own Maps by A. Jaffe for yourself or for a loved one.
