Ask Belle: Personalized Jewelry

Jun 4, 2013

Dear Belle,

I’m hoping you can help me find a gift for my bridesmaids.  I’m looking for jewelry that I can personalize with their names–it’s a family tradition–but I want something classic and simple.  My sister gave her maids those tacky “Carrie” necklaces from SATC and no one wears them.  

I love your style and am hoping you can track down something that my friends will actually want to wear.

Sincerely, Searching for Something Classy

Ciela Bangle ($129)

If you’re looking for personalized jewelry, the best place on the Internet to shop is Baublebar.  I adore this simple bangle, and this delicate initial necklace is simple and chic.  I also love this simple bar necklace.  And if you wanted to do something a bit different, you could buy them a pendant with the silhouette of their home state on it.

Need something cheaper?  Etsy has a lot of lovely choices.  I like this plate necklace and this ornate monogram bracelet.  But my favorite isthis nameplate bracelet with name and date, you could do their birthdays or your wedding date.

    Protip: don’t give someone other than your spouse a gift with your wedding date on it.

  3. CH says:

    If you aren’t “married” to the idea of including whole names, there are tons of Etsy sellers who do pendants with an initial stamped on a tiny disc. A little more subtle but still pretty.

  4. Chloe says:

    I wear my monogram necklace all the time and get compliments on it constantly because it’s smaller than the usual monogram necklaces. I liked that it was enclosed in a circle, too. Here’s the designer: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PersonalizeMeJewelry?ref=seller_info. It’s at a nice print point as well, just under $50. I got a 20″ chain to wear it with pretty much every neckline.

  5. Hila says:

    Great tips, I love the monogram bracelet, I already have one which I bought on Etsy.

  6. Kelly says:

    I also bought 8 monogram bracelets from this seller, got 15% discount (asked it from the seller). great quality and price.

  7. Elissa says:

    if you’re going to spend $129 on a bangle from Bauble bar, you might as well just buy something from Tiffanys for the same price

  8. M says:

    Another tip- if your bridesmaids are also engaged or soon to be, you may want to to with just a first initial instead of a full monogram.

    My sister made us charm bracelets with charms selected based on our interests and personalities.
