I took my two daughters and their best friend (ages 10, 11 ,12) to James Avery to get matching best friends necklaces. Instead of choosing the best friends charm like I intended, they all fell in love with the piggy bank because they have a special love for pigs. I loved their idea of picking something that had meaning and was a common bond for the three of them. The charm is heavy and solid, so they have to remove the necklace when they exercise. But we still give the piggy bank 5 stars for being completely adorable and unique!
The Piggy Bank Charm is a heavy, solid, smooth charm that looks just like a piggy bank. It reminds me of a Monopoly game piece for some reason, but I love it. My husband purchased it for me shortly after the birth of our son because we received several ceramic piggy banks at our baby shower, and spent months filling them with loose change from our pockets, wallets, my handbag, even change found on the floor or between the sofa cushions. His grandparents and close family friends even joined in, emptying the change from their pockets or handbags at the end of the day and inserting the coins into a piggy bank on the baby's shelf. It was with that change that we opened our son's first savings account!
Bought this charm for our Granddaughter as a xmas present. She loves pigs. She loves the charm. We also bought the chain to go with the charm.
