    Carrie Bradshaw went through so many outfits and shoes (including those Christian Louboutin ones she had to pay for), it’s impossible to keep count.

    But the one thing Carrie always, always wore is her iconic ‘Carrie’ necklace – or her ‘ghetto gold’ as she put it.

    Even though it only cost a few dollars, it was one of Carrie’s most prized possessions because she got it while out shopping with her girls in New York and it symbolises her friendship and single girl days.

    Well you’ll be happy to hear it’s just as sentimental to Sarah Jessica Parker, who still has it with her.

    She spoke at New York Magazine’s Vulture Festival that even though she kept 95% of the clothes she wore on the show (lucky thing), that necklace is what she values most.

    She said, ‘I have the ‘Carrie’ necklace still. I love it, and it’s tucked away somewhere safe.’

    And in a spooky case of reality imitating art, SJP also almost lost it on the set of one of the SATC movies, like Carrie did in Paris.

    ‘I wish I could play that scene again, because now that I’ve lived through it, I’d do a much better job,’ she said.

    Don’t worry, she did find it in the end, phew!
