Personalized Jewelry Gifts That Won’t Bore Them to Tears
For many, the personalized jewelry trend goes all the way back to childhood when you learned to string together colorful beads on a bracelet that spelled out your name in block letters. Or perhaps you made a “BFF” design for your closest summer camp pal. Personalized jewelry has not only seen several upgrades since adolescence but it’s also taken on many unique forms that continue to make it an especially impactful gift.
Customized accessories are more than about wearing your own name or initials. It’s sporting your astrological sign, inscribing a meaningful saying on a necklace, or wearing your significant other’s initials on a dainty pair of earrings. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and if you’re looking for a special way to show affection — or to wear a piece of jewelry that keeps loved ones close — these brands offer several ways to do it.
If your S.O. asked you for your exact time of birth, consider a personalized piece of astrology jewelry from Mejuri. Even if you don’t understand exactly how it works, you’ll let them know you’re convinced you’re both cosmically compatible.
