Monogram Jewelry Buying Guide
What better way to individualize your look than with a piece of monogram jewelry? Though traditionally "monogram" indicates a particular lettering style, it is often used as a general term for anything that can be personalized with a name, word, or initial. Sometimes, people will monogram their own name or initial, or one of a special loved one. Others may like to feature a certain word that brings inspiration or hope.
Monogram jewelry can make a thoughtful present for any occasion! Giving a personalized gift shows that you really took the time and effort to pick something special. And it's not just for women either – child's monogram jewelry and men's monogram accessories are available to accommodate all the loved ones in your life! Moreover, we have styles to suit all tastes and budgets! Our personalized jewelry comes in anything from sterling silver to gold, sometimes adorned with diamonds or pearls. Here are some of our favorite monogram jewelry styles:
Monogram Pendant or Charm
On a cord necklace or chain, you can wear your initials in a chic monogram pendant. Some classic creations engrave the initials onto a circle or oval disc. But if you want something fancy, opt for a cutout design, where the letters really come to life. These same style options are also available as charms for trendy, monogram bracelets. Whatever your choice, you'll want to make your monogram jewelry initials part of your signature look.
Spell it out! Wear your name or a special word stationed on a necklace. Name necklaces reveal your choice word through cutout letters, giving it a bold, handwritten look. Most have an 8-9 character limit and come in gold, sterling silver, or vermeil. Some extra special designs may even be sprinkled with diamond accents as an expression of your sparkling personality.
You've heard of dog tags, nameplates, or name bars? These are all forms of I.D. style jewelry. Whether it be a necklace or bracelet, I.D. jewelry offers a long flat surface to engrave with your name or initials. Some designs can hold as many as 12 characters.
When one letter says it all, opt for an initial necklace. A cutout, single initial pendant or charm will look so cute on a chain necklace – especially if it has diamond accents! These single initials styles are also offered as rings or bracelets. One popular trend is to layer different initials with a 16" and an 18" necklace. This could feature your first and last name initials, or even the initials of loved ones.
Signet rings feature a large flattened surface engraved with a monogram or initial. Today they are worn for style purposes, but originally they were used to create signature wax seals!
Men's Monogram Accessories:
Tie tacks, cuff links, money clips, and key chains – we offer these men's favorites with personalized engraving. These gifts are ideal for Father's Day, graduations, birthdays, and even Christmas.
