Sign Of The Times: Initial Jewelry Is Back

Valentino : Front Row - Paris Fashion Week - Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2019/2020

When we entered 2020, we were at the height of self-expression and individuality in jewelry. This direction continues to evolve and to influence designers to create pieces that strike a responsive chord with today’s modern woman yet also speaks to her personally.  We are seeing complete stories told through charm necklaces, beliefs and aspirations through motifs and sayings on medallions. And, we are witnessing a return to initials and monograms for pendants. Many of the engraved styles are customized and are available in a range of fonts, can have more than one letter when engraved on a locket or and can feature birthstones, or diamonds for a touch of sparkle. Women today are also choosing to wear their loved ones initials with their own.  Another idea is to mix up three-dimensional initials in different gemstones. For example, an E in pearls and a B in turquoise for your first and last name by different designers. Remember it’s all about expressing yourself so go for it and get as creative as you want!

Here are some of favorite initials and monograms. Starting with two we spotted on celebrities during the Paris spring couture shows and the international fall/winter 2020 runway shows:
