Patricia Field, the costume designer who worked with the iconic ladies on HBO's hit-series, unveiled the necklace on Monday, March 18.
The new necklace, dubbed the Carrie 2.0, features elements of the classic necklace as seen in Sex and the City, as well as several new features.
Its new features include two hearts and some curves surrounding the name itself.
New! The necklace is available in 14 karat gold or white gold
Retailing for $320, the Carrie 2.0 Custom Name Necklace is available in 14 karat gold, white gold and gold-plated options.
It is described on the website as 'a true classic with a modern day twist'.
Patricia said in a statement that the 'Carrie' necklace has remained a staple of her brand for 'many years'.
The designer added that the piece is a 'modern-day twist' on the classic necklace.
It features hearts and curves to the base of the nameplate, making it appear different to the original piece that featured on the show.
The campaign for the new piece features Caroline Vazzana, who describes herself as the 'modern day Carrie Bradshaw'.
The fashion blogger, stylist and author of Making It In Manhattan said it was Carrie Bradshaw who inspired her to pursue her dreams as a writer in New York City.
In a statement, Caroline said: 'I grew up watching Sex and the City (SATC) and subsequently launched my career as a writer in New York inspired by Carrie Bradshaw.
'So when Pat and her team asked me to be the face of the Carrie 2.0, I was so honored.'
'It was a true dream come true collaborating with [Field] and her team.
Delighted: When Caroline was asked to model the necklace for Patricia, she described it as 'a dream come true' as she loves the show

'Between the SATC nods and splashes of color from my wardrobe, it made for the perfect modern-day Carrie Bradshaw moment,' she added.
Photographs show the fashion editor and stylist wearing different pieces of clothing from her own closet.
Pieces include a pair of shoes by Carrie Bradshaw's favorite, Manolo Blahnik and accessories by Chanel and Betsey Johnson.

And the updated 'Carrie' necklace isn't the only thing fans of the show can get their hands on.
Patricia also sells several other iconic pieces of jewelry and clothing on her website.
The pieces include a number of Carrie-inspired tutu dresses, the classic 'Carrie' necklace and the identical rock she received from Mr. Big when he proposed to her.
The ring, which retails for $10,000, is a five carat black diamond ring which sits atop an 18 karat white gold band encrusted with 78 pave diamonds totaling 0.40 carats.
A diamond-encrusted version of the 'Carrie' necklace is also available.
The snazzy alternative retails for $1,050 and features round cut diamonds set in a 14K karat yellow or white gold custom-made personalized name necklace.
The iconic necklace caught people's eye throughout the various seasons of the hit show, as it was something that Carrie wore for years.
One of the most iconic scenes featuring the necklace involved her misplacing it when she went on a trip to Paris.

Nostalgia: Sarah (pictured as Carrie in Sex and the City) said she still has the iconic necklace to this day, and that she keeps it 'tucked away somewhere safe'
The writer was holidaying with Aleksandr, a famous Russian artist and current romantic interest, when she lost the necklace.
After revealing her devastation in misplacing her beloved item - which she says didn't cost much but holds sentimental value - she eventually found it in a hole in her vintage Dior purse.
Sarah Jessica Parker revealed in May 2017 that the scene was one of her favorites, and that she still has the necklace.
She told The Cut: 'I have the Carrie necklace still. I love it and it’s tucked away somewhere safe.'
The 53-year-old actress also revealed that she almost lost the necklace in real life before.
'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.
The new 'Carrie' necklace is available on Patricia's website.
