“If you’ve met one individual with autism, you’ve met one individual with autism.” ~ Stephen Shore (an individual on the autism spectrum)

If you are someone who knows and loves someone “on the spectrum,” there are probably things you wish others knew about your loved one. For instance, people don’t need to feel awkward around your autistic child, even if they do need to treat him a little differently. Still, there’s no reason to feel weird around him. You may wish people realized that those with autism are all individuals. Because your child isn’t like someone else they know with autism doesn’t mean he isn’t autistic.

Bring the discussion to the table by wearing our beautiful Autism Awareness Jewelry, like this 14k gold pendant with the big red heart in the middle. It’s approximately 13/16” tall and the bale opening measures 7mm x 3.6mm to accommodate a chain you already own, or purchase one of our 14k solid gold box chains in 18” or 20”. It is a beautiful piece of jewelry and one you’ll enjoy wearing day in and day out. But even more than that, it can be the conversation starter that helps someone become aware of the issue. Be an advocate. Help people understand!


“Autism can’t define me. I define autism.” ~ Kerry Magro  (an individual on the autism spectrum)

Something you may wish people realized about those with autism is these kids love. And they need love. They bring enormous joy and laughter to those who know and love them. Kids with special needs are smart, talented, creative and thoughtful. Even though it may not always be obvious, others must realize that their minds work differently.

Another way to bring awareness is by wearing our beautiful heart-shaped, enameled, sterling silver necklace. The puzzle pieces reflect the mystery and complexity of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and also that individuals affected are quite diverse.

Our lovely, evocative necklace opens up avenues for communication about ASD and allows you to show the world that people so affected are worthy of love and admiration. The heart pendant measures approximately 3/4″ tall x 15/16″ wide in size and includes an 18” cable chain necklace in .925 sterling silver. It’s also available as a stand-alone pendant—Enameled Autism Awareness Heart Pendant, Sterling Silver—in case you’d rather add your own chain.


“At the end of the day, we don’t dream our lives…WE LIVE THEM!” ~ Anthony Ianni (an individual on the spectrum)

You probably wish that people realized that children with autism express their emotions in ways unique to them. If your daughter is spinning around or making strange noises in the grocery store, she is trying to cope with the way her body receives stimuli. She may be (probably is) anxious, and scolding her will only add to that anxiety. So the judgmental looks you get from people who don’t understand are hurtful. Wearing autism awareness jewelry can help you spread the word that children on the spectrum may not seem “normal” to others, but it is your normal.

This lovely, solid 14k gold, enameled hand necklace pendant sports the puzzle piece that has been the main symbol for autism awareness since 1963, when Gerald Gasson, a parent and board member for the National Autistic Society, created the symbol to raise autism awareness. The hand pendant measures approximately 13/16” tall. You can add a matching solid 14k gold box chain in 18” or 20” to complete the necklace.


“Everyone has a mountain to climb and autism has not been my mountain, it has been my opportunity for victory.” ~ Rachel Barcellona (an individual on the spectrum)

In all likelihood, if you are the parent of an autistic child, you feel just as terrified and brave as do the parents of “normal” children. And above all, you want the world to accept your child as readily as they assume you will accept theirs. For that to become commonplace, a conversation has to happen. Discussion must occur, and communication must be open. That’s why at Apples of Gold, we want to offer beautiful jewelry that is not only lovely to look at, but also says so much.

Like this gorgeous enameled sterling silver puzzle piece pendant. Yes, autism is puzzling. Yes, each piece of the answer (the puzzle) is unique. And yes, your child wants and deserves to be understood. Because the puzzle isn’t just about ASD; it’s about the whole world, and how each of us fits in. We stand with you.

This beautiful pendant is crafted in pure .925 sterling silver. It is a colorful reminder to raise autism awareness and makes a great gift for a friend or a loved one. It measures approximately ⅞” tall and ⅝” wide and the bale will accommodate chain necklaces up to 4mm in size. You can add one of our sterling silver box chains in 18” or 20” (optional) or use a chain you already love. It’s time to start talking about autism. Let our engaging Autism Awareness Jewelry help you start the conversation!
