Meridane Design Jewelry Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Do you notice anything interesting about this pendant? Here...let me give you a hint...
This is the story of how the design came to be (taken from the website):

Meridane Design is a family owned business that was created when Sally Short serendipitously superimposed each letter of the phrase ‘LOVE IS ALL U NEED' on top of one another and then added a peace sign to complete the design. The design was then sent off to be cast in sterling silver as a ‘Love and Peace' pendant for Sally to wear. But when the Short family received it, they saw it sitting sideways and noticed a ‘K' popping out. “There is no ‘K' in LOVE IS ALL U NEED,” commented Merida. That motivated the family to look for other letters and they ended up uncovering EVERY LETTER of the ALPHABET and EVERY NUMBER within the symbol!

Meridane Design was created by Sally when she combined her two kid's names together, Merida and Dane. The Short family established a Mission Statement to ‘Spread Love and Empowerment' through the ‘What U Love' Symbol.

Given that the symbol contains every letter of the alphabet, it can mean ANYTHING to ANYBODY at ANYTIME. It gives people the ability to create their own personal message, HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT.

The 'What U Love' Symbol™ is a thought provoking conversation piece which can lift anyone's spirit, in the best or worst of times. It can also evolve with the person who is wearing it, as it can contain a different message each day.

“We had no idea that this symbol would become so powerful to so many people,” said Dane Short, Director of Sales and Marketing for his family's business. “We sell the symbol to men and women ages 9 to 90! It's a unisex, multilingual, interactive piece of jewelry with infinite possibilities.”

This Symbol allows people to ‘S-P-E-L-L' out what they want it to say, the combinations are endless!

Nobody is right,
Nobody is wrong,
Find the lyrics,
To your song,
Or spot your word,
Declare the theme,
One common Love,
But many the dream.

Enjoy the freedom to be creative and find your own personal message HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT.

“This symbol is a sign of the times,” commented Sally. “Everybody on this earth is united but unique. The consistent appearance of the symbol unites us all, and the messages we see within it make us unique.”

The ‘What U Love' symbol has, and always will be cast in the USA. A portion of Meridane's casting is done at Annie's Orphans in support of their No-Kill Dog Shelter, located in Durango Colorado.
My Take
How neat is this design! The design comes in not only pendants but also bracelets, earrings, custom necklaces, and t-shirts. The pendants come in different designs with various stones set in the center. I think the design itself is ingenious, and it's great that you can choose whether or not to buy a chain for it, which lowers the price if you decide to use your own chain. It's so hard for me to find jewelry or really anything personalized with my name, because it's Hebrew, so with this I can tell everyone it has my name right in the design...and their name, and their mother's name, etc. :-)

Cost:
  • The Small Sterling Silver Symbol (which is what I received) is $39 + shipping ($$$$)
  • The Large Sterling Silver Symbol is $49 + shipping ($$$$)
  • Necklace chains range from $16 - $26 + shipping ($$$$)
Someone very lucky will get to win a Meridane Sterling Silver Symbol Pendant (your choice of small or large).
