What's in a name?

Recently I got a commission to design a piece of jewelry for a woman who is having her first baby.

At first I was thinking of a more traditional design based on baby boys.  But, as I started working on some designs I decided that focusing on babies limited the wearability of the piece.  Instead I decided to use the baby's name and birthstone as my focus.

Here are some designs I came up with.

The woman who commissioned the piece had her family vote on their favorite design.  The vote was 4 to 1.  My favorite is the one they chose.  What's your favorite?  

I'll begin working on the piece tomorrow and will share a pic in a later post.

I like #1 because its subtle, doesn't shout the name.
