In most cases we use Arabic numbers, but the Roman numerals are also common in some applications. They can be seen on watches and clock faces, they can be found in books on prefaces and chapters, they can be seen in movies and at major events, but they are also used to name monarchs or to indicate the year on monuments and buildings. 

In this number system, which originated in ancient Rome, there are seven letters, each with a fixed integer value, which, when combined in different forms, produce new numbers. The Roman numerals consist of a combination of the letters I, V, X, L, C, D and M, whose symbols stand for 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 in the Hindu-Arabic number system. 
The position of the letters in relation to each other determines the value of the Roman numeral itself. 

These Roman numerals, which were the usual way of writing numbers throughout Europe in the late Middle Ages, were later replaced by the already mentioned Hindu-Arabic number system. 

Beside the mentioned items, you can also see these numbers on the Roman numeral date necklace below. Its 3x0.6cm pendant can be personalized with your own date. The necklace from is available in 3 colours: sterling silver 925, 18K gold plated silver and platinum plated silver. You can choose a chain length from 35 to 55 cm.
By selecting the number, please make sure that you are using the correct form, which by default corresponds to the American style: mm/dd/yy.

A memorial necklace with picture can also be considered when it comes to personal keepsakes. There are different designs that can be customized with your own photo. Some allow you to engrave the back of your pendant or place your photo on the back instead of the front.

Which pendant is your favourite from the picture above? Do you have a personal keepsake? If so, what it is?
