A monogrammed necklace is a timeless jewelry piece that never goes out of style. While no one knows the exact origin of initial jewelry, it was worn at least as far back as the 14th or 15th century. For the last several centuries, it has served as a treasured gift that can be worn for any occasion. Anne Boleyn lived from roughly 1500 to 1536. The second queen of King Henry VIII, there are 26 known portraits of her. Remarkably, she is wearing a necklace with a “B” initial in nearly every single one. Anne Boleyn’s initial necklace is one of the most famous in history and serves as evidence of this enduring style.

Today, monogrammed necklaces come in many different designs and styles. Whether you prefer a simple, dainty initial, a bold acrylic monogram, or nearly anything else you can imagine, there is an option to suit any preference. If you are trying to come up with the perfect way to style your monogrammed necklace, here are a few options. 

As a Simple Signature Piece

One of the great things about a monogrammed necklace is that even a simple piece can make a big impression. A monogrammed delicate disc necklace is an ideal choice if you are looking for a classic, minimal piece that you can wear every day. Available in silver, gold, and rose gold, it looks stunning when worn with shirts or dresses with scoop necks or V-necks. It also looks lovely with a crewneck. If you want a monogrammed necklace that you can wear every day and for virtually any occasion, a simple, delicate disc with your initial is an excellent choice. 

If you are looking for a signature piece with a little more “oomph,” choose a necklace with a slightly longer chain or a more elaborate design. Monogrammed lockets, triangles, and bar necklaces are great for daily wear, too. 

As an Edgy Accessory

If you want to spice things up a bit, go with a monogrammed choker. A suede choker is a fun and funky choice as well. When worn with a lower-cut shirt, the feminine accessory has more of a trendy edge. A choker is great for any child of the 90s, and it can be paired with a longer necklace for a fun, layered look. 

An acrylic monogrammed necklace can be worn as a bold and edgy accessory, too. Opt for a large one in black or red to make a big impression with any outfit. Wear it with a t-shirt under a leather jacket or blazer for a show-stopping look that’s sure to turn heads. 

As a Focal Piece

A bold initial necklace serves as the perfect focal piece when worn with a turtleneck sweater or solid-colored tunic. Something like the monogrammed teardrop necklace is stunning with a black sweater. Available in gray or marble, the stone-age necklace is another popular choice that works well with tunics and tees. 

A monogrammed signature necklace can serve as a beautiful focal piece, too. Made from sterling silver or gold, this beautiful piece looks amazing with a scoop neck shirt. It is hand-drawn for a true one-of-a-kind look, and it’s sure to grab lots of attention. 

In Layers

Who says you can only wear one monogram necklace? They come in all sorts of styles and in just about everything length you can imagine, so it’s possible to layer them to create a unique and eye-catching look. Pair a choker with a mid-length necklace and one with at least a 24-inch chain. Choose ones that are all the same color, or mix and match metals for a fun and unique look. 

You can also “layer” your monogrammed necklace with other accessories, too. Whether you pair it with initial earrings, a tote emblazoned with your initials, or any other type of monogrammed accessory, there’s no such thing as “overdoing” it!
