Ivan Alan Jewels introduces the Personal Pendant

What do you hope for? What do you believe in? What do you love? What’s life all about and what makes people strive to be better or enjoy their life? “These are questions I always think about when having a conversation with friends and family,” says Ivan Levi, owner of Ivan Alan Jewels. This line of thinking is what led Levi to create the Personal Pendant.

The Personal Pendant brings meaning to each person that wears it. The physical design of each piece has a symbolic circle symbolizing forever, and three diamonds in the center symbolizing hope, love and believe.

“I designed the Personal Pendant not only for it’s symbolic meaning, but also because it’s simply a very pretty piece,” say Levi. “It’s a classic look that will never be outdated, and it gives the wearer something to get excited about and talk to their friends and coworkers about.”

The Personal Pendant is ideal as a wedding present for the bride to be, or simply as a birthday or Christmas present.

According to Levi, the Personal Pendant is already being carried by several stores and the reorders are strong. “The greatest thing about this program is it’s proven,” he says. “It even works on small omegas, so if you want to stack several of them you can do that too! It’s fun to wear, it’s real jewelry, and I am very proud to have people wear it. That’s what drives me to keep creating!”
