Golden Trio: Kristina's Necklace Tribute to Her Boys

From: Lompoc, CA.

Kristina's necklace tells a profound story with every charm. The letters 'N' and 'L' represent her sons, Noah and Luke, while the December birthstone stands as a tribute to her husband. The necklace is a wearable reminder of the three most important people in her world.

Noah, Kristina's first-born, faced a life-altering challenge when diagnosed with brain and spine cancer in 2004. As he underwent treatment at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), Kristina discovered a silent camaraderie among mothers who also wore similar letter necklaces. Beyond a fashion statement, these necklaces became symbols of strength and family solidarity, weaving a support network through shared struggles.

Noah's cancer journey was a series of challenges, from the initial diagnosis at a tender age to a reoccurrence in 2019. The Benchek family navigated the unimaginable, emerging on the other side with a renewed sense of strength and unity. Noah, now cancer-free and embracing life to the fullest, serves as a living tribute to their shared triumph over an incredibly dark and difficult time.

Kristina lovingly shares, "These three men put the most important people in my world. I wouldn’t be who I am without them. The necklace is a reminder of that." The jewelry becomes more than an accessory—it encapsulates the essence of love, strength and the unbreakable bonds that define Kristina's world.

In every piece of jewelry, there is a story waiting to be told. Kristina's personalized letter necklace serves as a reminder that even in the face of pain and struggle, family bonds can carry us through even the hardest of times.
