Elegant City Skyline Necklaces Keep Beloved Metropolis Close to Your Heart


Jewelry is a popular way to remember your favorite city and keep its memories close to your heart. Designers Sharona Merlin and and Chen Ben-Ami have created a stylish option with their bold necklaces that display the skylines of beloved metropolises like London, Paris, New York City, and Tokyo. The statement-making pieces are elegant and elongated views that showcase each locale’s iconic sights—if you’re familiar with that particular place, you’ll instantly recognize the grand architecture that the two women depict.

Each of the gold and silver-plated necklaces are beautiful in their intricacy. The attention paid to the small details of buildings and bridges is impressive. To achieve this level of precision, Merlin and Ben-Ami first design the pendants by hand and then machine etch the drawings—this allows the pieces to be sturdy but look delicate.

You can celebrate your own skyline—Merlin and Ben-Ami take custom orders—or select your favorite big city in their Etsy shop, Sketcha Jewelry.
