Our Custom Initial Necklace is one of our top sellers due to its being very personalized and made-to-order in our showroom. Made from 14K Gold Fill, it features a dainty chain and a tiny letter pendant which you can customize up to 7 letters per necklace! It being our most popular necklace, we have decided to test out the Custom Initial Necklace’s durability and longevity for three months to see whether it would withstand constant everyday wear.
To test out the longevity of our Custom Initial Necklace, we have fixed an initial necklace onto our Marketing Assistant, Gia. The necklace was attached via each end of the letter and I manually removed the clasp so that she could not take it off!
After wearing it for one whole month – in the shower, to the gym, to the beach – the necklace maintained its quality, and most importantly did not tarnish or react to her skin. Whilst is was foreign for Gia to not take her jewelry off to sleep and shower she found it comforting to know that even when she wakes up she knew that the necklace would still be there.
After two months of wear, the necklace naturally became a part of Gia’s everyday outfit! She said that she often forgot that it was even there! Whilst not as sparkly as when we first put it on her (because we hadn't had the chance to give it a quick polish) upon further inspection the chain and the letter were still in good nick and holding up very well!
Gia said that during month two of the trial she also did a lot of physical activity like hiking and yoga which meant that the necklace was exposed to movement and sweat. Whilst we generally do not recommend wearing this piece for such activities, it was comforting to know that it could withstand such movement!
Three months in, the necklace was still holding strong and it feels like the necklace has just become a part of Gia! At the conclusion of 3 months we asked Gia to grip the necklace really strongly from both sides of the necklace and yank aggressively to truly test it's strength. It was only on this occasion that the necklace broke. So in conclusion, we found that for everyday wear the necklace has full potential to keep up with your lifestyle but if it is yanked or ripped it will naturally break.
We still recommend removing our Custom Initial Necklace when going to sleep, and to avoid wearing clothing that can tug, snag, or damage the necklace. But after three months of testing, it proves that our Custom Initial Necklace is sturdy and can still withstand constant everyday wear!
However, we do acknowledge that there will always be cases where our Custom Initial Necklace may not perform the same way we have experienced. Please reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org to solve any issue you may encounter with your own initial necklace.
