The best jewels are the ones with meaning and sentiment. Integrating initials into your accessories can be a nice way to keep a loved one in your thoughts – every time you look at the jewel, you’ll be flooded with love and memories. It can also just be fun to personalize your pieces (I love all things monogrammed – bags, stationary, etc.). Even better yet, they make for thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts!
Accentuality Geode Initial Necklace: This is the ultimate in personalization – you choose not only your initial, but also which color agate you’d like (and each agate is completely unique). Want your first and last initials? No problem. On Accentuality for $65.
Sarah Chloe Ava Freestyle Necklace: If you want a nameplate necklace à la Carrie Bradshaw, this is the piece to get. You could even make yours out with the name of someone special, like your tot or hubby. On Charm and Chain for $149.
Jacquie Aiche Alphabet Letter Initial Waif Ring: This slender gold-vermeil ring isn’t screaming for attention, so you could easily get away with stacking two – maybe your initial and your bff’s! On Shopbop for $77.
Roberto Coin Diamond Initial Bangle: Everything is said better in diamonds. Wear this alone for understated style or add on few other bangles to make a bigger statement. At Neiman Marcus for $1,380.
Jennifer Zeuner Gold Initial Earrings: These are my favorites of the bunch. You buy each earring separately, so you can have one initial for your first name and another for your last! At Bergdorf Goodman for $66 each.
