Over the centuries, medallions were often given to signify achievement, the accomplishment of a great goal or to recognize performance. When we created our Dorothy Medallion and added the inscription You had the power all along my dear, we wanted to recognize the empowering moments in all of our lives; the moments that strengthen our resolve to aim for high achievement. We believed that a simple 18k gold medallion or sterling silver medallion, inscribed with those empowering words, could be an everyday piece of fine jewelry that reminds us of what we are capable of accomplishing. At MRK, we believe that jewelry should not just be beautiful. It should empower you, inspire you, and make you stronger. Since we first started, empowering jewelry has always been the foundation of our brand. So it was only natural that after introducing the Dorothy Medallion, we began asking women to complete the sentence, “I had the power when …..” Their answers on our social channels, on our blog and in person have been a celebration of empowerment, and we are always humbled and grateful when anyone chooses to share those moments with us. In that sense, the Dorothy Medallion started a conversation for us about empowering women and girls, and it is a conversation we look forward to continuing within our MRK community. Please feel free to share your own thoughts and experiences. As a styling tip, we love our Dorothy Medallions worn short, either as simple statement pieces or combined with the other every day favorites found in each of our jewelry boxes. With that in mind, all the chains for the Dorothy styles are adjustable, so they can be worn at just the right length to complement your other treasured jewelry pieces. No matter when, where and how you choose to wear your Dorothy Medallion, please just remember, You had the power all along my dear.
