This very minimalist and super tiny area code bar necklace is perfect for a delicate look. Engrave it for a very discreet showcase of your area code!
Did you know the area codes that were originally created in the 40s were based on how densely populared a city was? Those in a highly populated area had smaller codes that used lower digits (e.g. 1, 2, and 3) versus areas will a smaller population (e.g. 7, 8, and 9). The logic behind this was that the more populated areas wouldn't have to wait as long for the rotations of the rotary phone!
This piece would look great layered with other necklaces as well as alone for that very simple everyday look. However, don't feel limited to area codes. Engrave your initials or even a short name. My only recommendation would be to not use a cursive/script fonts since they look best with words and phrases rather than individual initials or numbers. The area code "416" necklace uses font 18.
