Message Hey, do by any chance know where to get the “Carrie” necklace that she wears in Sex and the City. You know, the gold name printed necklace .. I’ve been trying to find it all over Toronto but haven’t gotten any luck. If you do, that would be great.
Thanks

Personalized Boutique is the official supplier of the “Carrie” necklace which you can purchase online. However if you are looking for something in Toronto, I would suggest going to Made You Look. They do custom work and I’m sure they can come up with something the same.

  2. Another suggestion…

    About 7 years ago I wanted one of these necklaces for xmas. If you go to anyone of those jewelers on Yonge south of Dundas (across from Eaton Centre) they will custom make a nameplate necklace for you. You can also to a certain extent design your own. They can also add jewels.

    I would guess that when I got my necklace the nameplate alone was between 80-150.

  3. First off all I wasn’t aware that there was an official source for a Carrie necklace. In fact, the one that is offered on the website mentioned above is not even the same style as the one Carrie wore! With the Internet, there is no need to have to find a local source. Local sources that offer nameplate necklaces almost always order elsewhere and it takes a few weeks and their prices are higher. http://www.wow-imports.com offers the widest selection of nameplate necklaces in many exclusive styles and in many languages. For only $27.95 for sterling silver with up to 12 letters and $109 for 14k gold up to 8 letters you can get your Carrie necklace (yes, the same classic style that Carrie Bradshwaw wore)or any name necklace in your choice of style and that includes shipping to Canada or anywhere in the world. So much for the overpriced local shops and websites!
