Need a unique wedding gift idea? How about a Monogram Necklace?!
The monogram is a well-known symbol of identity. People generally recognize it as initials or a combined set of letters. What many people don’t know is how the monogram came to be and the proper way to create one.
Historically a monogram was a royal signature. The Romans and Greeks used them on coins as identification for rulers.
Then in the Victorian period, high-class persons adapted the monogram for personal use to represent their place in society.
Today, the monogram is used on basically anything: bags, shoes, purses, clothes, personal stationary, and, of course, JEWELRY!
Ladyslipper Boutique offers beautiful Monogram cut-out necklaces. They are frequently seen on Atlantic-Pacific blog post. Ladyslipper Boutique monogram necklaces are sterling silver base, plated in 14k gold but also available in silver. They are available in 16” or 18” lengths. Cost is $132.00. Please allow four weeks lead time for a special order.
The owner of Ladyslipper Boutique, Amanda Rose, believes this is a great gift for the bride whose monogram will be changing!
Many brides follow the old Victorian monogram consisting of the brides’ first initial on the left, the groom’s initial on the right, and the joint last name initial larger in the center. Another alternative is the first name initial on the left, maiden initial on the right, and the new last initial larger in the center.
Keep in mind that you do not have to follow the traditional Victorian rule for monogramming. Because of the constant changes and differences in styles and personalities, a monogram can be playful, whimsical, flamboyant, traditional, elegant or understated.
Don’t forget to stop into Ladyslipper Boutique and personalize your necklace today for yourself or as a great wedding gift. Make sure to mention that you saw this gift idea from ForeverBride.com!
