Would Carrie Bradshaw still be Carrie Bradshaw without her iconic nameplate necklace? The team behind the CW’s Carrie Diaries must not think so: they’ve given new star AnnaSophia Robb a pendant of her own.

On the new show — a prequel to the wildly popular Sex and the City — Robb wears Alex Woo’s “little letter C” 14-karat gold necklace. The $678 piece sits on a diamond-cut 14-karat yellow-gold chain.

For fans of the original, personalized nameplates in white and yellow gold are available for $270 through the series’ and movies’ costume designer, Patricia Field.

Set during Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years, The Carrie Diaries (based on author Candice Bushnell’s 2010 novel) details the budding fashionista’s early relationships, how she began as a writer, and her very first love: the wealthy Sebastian Kydd, on whom she’s had a crush since she was 12. The series just started filming in N.Y.C., and also calls on the talents of Gossip Girl costumer (and former SATC assistant costumer) Eric Daman.

As long as there are women in the military, there needs to be a means by which to get and keep them ready to fight. If this smtluaior helps to build empathy and thereby help to get these soldiers back to their units faster and in shape, then I’m all for it. Go Army!
