Nameplate necklaces has dated back for years, typically in gold in elaborate script, long before the hit television show, Sex and the City. Although, after Sara Jessica Parker wore the ‘Carrie’ necklace on the show, her character’s signature nameplate necklace became an instant fashion trend. Carrie Bradshaw went through many different style evolutions, yet the item that always remained a constant was the necklace. Fans of Sex and the City were eager to sport the trend after seeing Carrie wear hers. More than two decades later, the nameplate fad has returned and continues to be of popularity.
Fans of the series were crushed in the moment that Carrie lost her beloved necklace in Paris during the series finale. Acquired while shopping with her best girlfriends and symbolizing her single days in New York City, the necklace was a priceless piece, in which women of all ages experienced growing with Carrie and her necklace for many years. Patricia Fields, the show’s legendary costume designer explains that she had a store in the city in which many kids in the neighborhood would wear nameplate necklaces and she thought she would introduce the idea to Sara. Sara loved the idea and from there, the rest was history.
The show precedingly reaches out to women, to new generations, through Carrie’s iconic fashion choices. Many continue to wear their own timeless nameplate and new, contemporary styles continue to be released. Following the trend of layering jewelry, typically gold jewels, a nameplate necklace has become just the right anchor, focal piece of a layering stack. Many innovative styles have been created, showcasing a modern approach to the classic gold Carrie necklace. These styles include: initial necklaces, rose gold or silver nameplates, nameplates with diamonds, as well as necklaces in different fonts than the typical piece- such as, all capital letters or even Old English font, and even numbers (a new trend that many enjoy to wear their date of birth!).
