10th Commandment: July 25

Jul 25, 2012

I’ve never been particularly enamored with my monogram.  The one exception would be signet rings. Old or new, I think they’re so stylish.

Jordann Gold Vermeil Signet Ring (Max & Chloe, $245)

If you want to customize your ring, you need to buy a blank like this one that can be engraved to suit your taste.  If you want something less expensive, any jewelry store from the mall to 5th Avenue sells blank rings for engraving.

Antique signet rings can be found on Etsy, eBay, at antique shops or in Grandma Millie’s jewelry box.  I especially love rings, like this one, that look aged.

    What are your thoughts on monogram necklaces? I'm leaning toward thinking they're adorable, but I'm not sure if they veer too much to the tacky side. Would love to see what others think.

  2. Amanda says:

    Belle, this is off topic for today, but I remember you posted on Tuesday that you ordered the j.crew shirt dress in end-on-end… it is now sold out online! That was quick. Anyway, I got it in navy blue last night, and I love it. I hope you like yours just as much. It has an unusual shape–it is basically just a big, almost tent-like A-line starting under the shoulders, but gathered with the self sash or another belt, all the volume looks very pretty. Good luck!

  3. Belle says:

    Chloe: Depends on the necklace. I think some of the larger ones are gaudy, but they can be cute.

  4. APW says:

    Great post! I absolutely love my signet ring. I received it as a Christmas gift in college, and I think it becomes prettier and prettier as it ages. It is definitely a timeless piece that I treasure.

  5. Chloe says:

    Agree with your comment, Belle. I'm trying to find a smaller one in silver, since I never wear gold. I layer two very small necklaces every day, so need something that goes with both of them. The search continues!

  6. Erin M. says:

    Chloe – if you aren't sure about the necklace I have a monogrammed silver cuff that I got as a present a few years back that i just adore, that could be something too look into too… it looks a lot like this one, and this store has the necklaces in silver too!

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
