Who doesn’t love personalized items?? My daughter has always enjoyed finding things with her name on them- although a difficult feat when adorned with an unusual name like Abryanna. We have never found anything in the retail marked that bears her name- or even her nickname, “Bree”. We were thrilled when we were given the opportunity to sample a name necklace from Wow! Imports. Although I was overwhelmed by the choices, my little diva was very quick to choose one of the adorable children’s name necklaces and wanted it personalized with “Bree”, the name she is most often called. We were both thrilled when the little box arrived and I have been unable to take it off her since it arrived.
About Wow! Imports:
Wow! Imports was founded by the Askotzky brothers. Ron, the artist in the family and admirer of fine handicrafts, found that many talented Israeli and African craftspeople were limiting their sales to the local market and had no mechanism for marketing their creations in the more affluent U.S. crafts market. Together with his wife, Lisa, he dreamed of creating such a mechanism but it seemed like a daunting task. Then his brother, Steve, had the opportunity to see a sampling of these fine handicrafts and was most impressed. One thing led to another and Wow! Imports was formed.
Wow! Imports offers amazing African bead and wire art animal figurines, piggy banks, beaded key chains, beaded flatware and serving pieces, miniature motorcycle figurines and beaded Christmas ornaments, recycled plastic bag animals, particularly plastic bag roosters and chickens and personalized name jewelry in a huge array of styles.
Most of the African crafts offered on Wow! Imports are made by groups that are members of or certified by Proudly South African, International Fair Trade (IFAT) or Black Economic Empowerment (BEE). This ensures the products you receive meet high quality standards and the companies producing them are committed to fair labor and employment practices as well as sound environmental standards.
The name necklace we received was beautifully made with great attention to detail. It has also been proven to be high quality as it has held up well to the wear and tear of my daughter’s constant pulling and tugging of it. I know this will be a treasure that she will enjoy for years to come. With the enormous array of styles and features, Wow! Imports has the perfect gift for the special ones in your life. You can purchase your own adorable name necklace or any of the other great items offered by Wow! Imports on their website.

If you’re wondering what others thought of Wow! Imports’ name necklaces, check out what our reviewers had to say:
The Mom Buzz – The Kaitlyn name pendant is .7mm thick and approximately 1/2? tall from the top of the first letter. It comes standard with a .7mm thickness. It includes a 1mm wide sterling silver box chain. It seems sturdy and it’s a very cool font, perfect for my niece. It is $28.95. Overall, I am extremely pleased with both the quality and the level of service I received! They really made sure I was happy with my name necklace, and that means so much to me!
The Mom Maven – The “Briana” font is what most people would call the “Walt Disney” font. Being the HUGE Disney fan that I am I have worn this necklace almost everyday since I received it. Many of my friends has asked where in Walt Disney World I bought the necklace and they are impressed that I got it online and that they can get one too for less than $30!
Julian and Morin’s Photoblog – As you can see from the above photo, the quality looks quite good and it is quite well done. Even my daughter who saw the name necklace said she want to have one for herself with her own name. So, perhaps we will soon get her one as well. The necklace chain comes in various lengths as well to suit the wearer’s requirement. Some may like it long and some may like it shorter.
5 Vinez Monkeys – The necklace itself is gorgeous. It came on an 18 inch box chain that is just the right length and sparkles when the light hits it. This is my new favorite necklace to wear, simply because it goes with everything. It looks fabulous paired with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, and it looks beautiful when I’m all dressed up.
Health Freak Mommy – I cannot tell you how ecstatic my little vain pot has been ever since she received the name necklace. She feels special that of the 3 girls, mummy chose her to be the recipient of the name necklace. She has been wearing it to school and even to her ballet class! She does not even want me to wear the necklace for her and wants to put the necklace on herself!
Maria’s Space – I also love that their were child sized necklaces. I have 8 nieces to buy for during the holidays and they all love jewelry.
What impressed me the most about Wow Imports was their fast delivery, the quality of the necklace but more than that was the selection of interesting different products I found on their website.
Rambling Moo – Finally, I received this beautiful sterling silver name necklace personalized with her ‘pet’ name on it together with a 14″ chain. It came all the way from the US but it was actually made in Jerusalem, Israel! How special and unique is that??? This is indeed the most meaningful and unique gift for the Lil’ Princess thus far! What is more, it was so nicely done that I thought to get one for myself too! Do you know that it is hand-made too?
Reviews & Reflections – We are just thrilled with this necklace! Not only does it have Gracie’s name on it and look precious on her, but it’s also very well made. I’ve had cheap necklaces that the clasps break on them right away – this necklace it not like that. The chain is very nice – hasn’t gotten any kinks in it, despite many days of wear (and one night that we forgot to take it off!) – and the clasp seems like one that will hold off to many uses.
Sewing Mom – I’m fairly particular when it comes to jewelry, but this piece definitely exceeded my expectations. The name itself is very easy to read and is made of a thicker metal, so not easily bent or broken. The name is connected to a very pretty silver box chain 16 inches in length which goes nicely with just about any style of shirt or dress. The connections are all nice and smooth so they don’t scratch the skin at all and I like the box style chain because I find them to be stronger, not to mention, I think they catch the light and give off more sparkle than other styles of chains!
Makimeji – I love this one and only necklace I possess which has my initials on it. I really do, although at first sight I was a bit disappointed to see the size of the name — I’d have liked it a tad bigger (but then that wouldn’t be proportional to the size of the chain, too). So if the chain is increased a bit in size along with the name, then it would have been perfect for me. But apart from that, I think it’s lovely. It’s lovely to have a name necklace afterall and I deeply hope I look lovely wearing it as well. *grins* Gotta bring justice to the craftmanship, which I believe is unquestionable! With its chain simply fine and smooth, I certainly have no doubt with the quality of the product.
Happy Healthy Families – The selection of name necklaces available made it a fun but somewhat tough decision when it came to picking one. Surprisingly enough, my daughter and I both chose the same style, the Morgan necklace. I thought the whimsical lettering style just fit perfectly with my daughter’s personality.
