What is it about a monogram that makes everything better? Monogram jewelry, especially: it is timeless and season-less, and you can buy it for yourself or as a gift knowing that it will look just as au currant today as 2o years from now. Like a pair of diamond stud earrings or a strand of pearls, a monogram piece is a perennially popular item of jewelry — which makes it a thoughtful, and essentially fool-proof holiday gift (… so long as you get the initials right).
GIFT GUIDE: TRADITIONAL MONOGRAM JEWELRY
TAKE A SIDE
With monograms you can go the traditional route, as with the looks above, or go for a contemporary style that more playful.
CASE IN POINT
This is a pic of myself (#selfie) that I posted on instagram about a month ago. I chose a playful route when I selected this monogram necklace from 9th & Elm, which spells out my social media handle. Although clearly a contemporary style, this necklace will most likely look completely current in 20 years. The thing with fashion is – it’s new, then it’s old, then 20 years later it’s new again. So I dare say this necklace will be completely current in 2034.
