There is a saying that women from the south love to have their initials monogrammed on everything. I suppose that might be true because I know I sure do! Even my jewelry. I LOVE wearing personalized jewelry!
I recently teamed up with oNecklace to show you some of their personalized jewelry that would be perfect as Holiday gifts. I received some really pretty jewelry as a thank you and to show you how it looks.
When Clay and I got married we decided to go with Sterling Silver weddings bands. We were only 19 and so we purchased the least expensive rings we could find. These last 20 years have taken a toll on our wedding bands so we decided to get new ones for our 20th Anniversary. Clay works with big, heavy pipe and his poor wedding band could no longer handle it. It got bent out of shape, badly, so he recently purchased himself a titanium ring to withstand his work. I prefer to stick with Sterling Silver.
I’m not a fancy girl. Simple is fine with me. Something personalized to help share our story is even better! So I chose a name ring from oNecklace that has our names and wedding date engraved on it. It is Sterling Silver and I absolutely love it! It isn’t a traditional wedding band, which I love, and it commemorates the day we were married so it is perfect.
To go along with it, I chose an infinity initial heart charm bracelet. It is also Sterling Silver and has the infinity symbol with two charms engraved with our initials dangling from it. The infinity symbol and dangling heart charms are attached to two chains. It looks very dainty and pretty on my wrist and I love how it compliments my ring!
Clay recently got me a “mother’s necklace” that has the tree of life and all 4 of our children’s birthstones inside. It is on a really long chain so I wanted something that would hang inside for a layered look. I also wanted something that had some meaning to it. So, for Christmas gifts, I ordered the engraved birthstone mother-daughter necklace set.
It has one necklace, for me, with hearts cut out of it and each of our daughters birthstones. Then, they each get a heart necklace with their initial on it. We use nicknames a lot in our family so we sometimes monogram with nickname initials which is super cute. I think this will make such a great mother/daughter gift!
While it doesn’t include our son, I feel it will be something the girls and I can bond over. One thing to note, I ordered myself the 18″ chain and it is too short. I have a thicker neck and it is more of a choker length on me. Other 18″ chains fit me well so I’m not sure why this one seems so short. So I do need a longer chain. I think the girls length (14″ and 16″) will be perfect for them, though.
Clay doesn’t really wear jewelry other than his wedding ring so I’m thinking about getting matching, personalized pocket knives for him and our son. That will be something they can always keep. My son loves leather bracelets like I do so I may even try to find some personalized leather bands for the two of us. Something to show him how much he means to me too.
Ok, so I mentioned how, as a southern gal, I love monograms. Well, oNecklace has monogram earrings! I ordered a pair with my initials. They are a bit bigger than I thought they would be but I love them! I’m a silver girl so I also ordered them in Sterling Silver. I love the script font used for the initials. You almost can’t tell they are initials. It gives them sort of a filigree look that is super pretty. They are french hook and the hook is nice and long so it stays in my ear really well.
All of the jewelry I ordered is made really well. The engraving is done perfectly and very legible. The jewelry doesn’t feel thin or cheap. It feels like great quality, sterling silver with 0.925 inside to show it is indeed silver. Everything arrived quickly and was packaged nicely and even included authenticity cards for the silver.
There are tons of personalized jewelry pieces, for women, to choose from and you can also get some items in 14k gold, rose gold, gold plated, etc.
I found a few more items that would be perfect for our girls for Christmas. I definitely have my wish list made!
Talk to me ladies. Do you love monograms and personalized jewelry as much as I do?
