I grew up in Connecticut and went to prep school, and went to University at a small place in New England. I offer up this information because I’m kind of a preppy girl. Not super preppy, but I loves me some J. Crew, and I have a minor addiction to anything monogrammed with my initials.

I try not to go overboard, but I’m loving the fact that wearing your initials, especially in jewelry form, is becoming such a fashion statement.

Intuition out in Los Angeles has an entire section in their online boutique devoted to “personalized items; I absolutely love this Pagliei stamped necklace, and I like the “double personalization of this Rafia Birthstone Initial necklace in dark citrine (incidentally, not my birthstone, but they don’t seem to offer Peridot and I love citrine).

Wink NYC also has a simple gold disc necklace with a cut-out initial.


The sheer simplicity of this one makes it an effortless choice that will go with any outfit. Plus, at $70 it is quite affordable! Personalized items are a great gift option too—even if the recipient is yourself!
