This 500 year-old jewellery trend is bigger than ever

Make it personal

I love uncovering fun little facts on Instagram and my latest discovery brings together Anne Boleyn and Britney Spears. That’s right, two divas of their time have something in common and that’s a flair for personalised jewellery.

According to writer and historian Carol Woolton, initial jewellery traces back some 500 years so if you ever bought a bespoke piece of jewellery, you have made a wise investment.

Woolton’s discovery is well-timed as I have seen an increase in initial jewellery online and social channels and am patiently waiting for MATEO to release a ‘D’ ring.

Whether you’re in a mood to adorn yourself or on the lookout for a personal gift, alphabet jewellery is a timeless addition to any collection – just ask anyone who managed to snap up an Old Celine initial necklace.

There is also a broad price range to make your selection from, including a ZARA necklace at £14.99 to a colourful pendant courtesy of Jennifer Meyer at £980.

Check out my favourites below.
