These necklaces with names on, also known as personalised name necklaces, are a beautiful and unique way to display your identity and add a personal touch to your style.

In this blog post, we will delve into the world of personalised name necklaces and explore the various styles and options available, so you can choose the perfect one for you.

Definition of Name Necklaces

First off, let's define what a name necklace is. As the name suggests, it is a necklace with a person's name written on it.

This could be in the form of a personalised pendant necklace, charm, or even on the chain itself. Name necklaces for women can also be referred to as custom name necklaces or personalised necklaces with names.

These are often made to order, with the recipient's name crafted into the design.

Importance of Understanding Different Styles

Understanding the different styles of name necklaces is essential as each style has its own unique look and significance. These necklaces have been around for centuries, and their origins can be traced back to ancient civilisations. They were initially worn as a form of identification and protection, but over time, they have evolved into a fashion statement.

One of the most popular styles of name necklaces is the traditional block letter design. This style features the name spelled out in a bold and simple font, making it the perfect option for those who prefer a classic and timeless look.

Another popular option is cursive lettering, which adds a touch of elegance and femininity to the necklace.

For a more edgy look the old English font has a punk inspired look for the fashion forward ladies.

Arabic name necklaces have also gained popularity, showcasing the beauty of the Arabic alphabet.

These symbolic name necklaces add a special significance to the jewellery piece.

How much does a gold name necklace cost?

The cost of a gold name necklace can vary greatly depending on the materials, craftsmanship, and design. It's important to do your research and choose a reputable jewellery brand like ours for a high-quality and timeless piece.

As the cost of a gold name necklace varies based on a few factors. These include the materials used, the level of craftsmanship, and the design itself. The most common materials used for name necklaces are gold, silver, and plated metals. Solid gold tends to be the most best choice due to its durability and aesthetic appeal.

In terms of craftsmanship, the skill and expertise of the jeweller play a crucial role in determining the cost of the necklace. A well-made necklace with intricate details and flawless finish will naturally be more expensive than a basic design. Similarly, the design of the necklace is also a major factor. A simple cursive font will cost less than a custom design with diamonds or other gemstones.

We understand the importance of creating a personalised piece that truly reflects your individual style. Our expert jewellers handcraft each necklace with the utmost care and attention to detail, ensuring a high-quality and long-lasting piece of jewellery.

How to layer name necklaces?

The key to layering any type of necklace is to choose the right length. When it comes to name necklaces, pick different lengths to create a cascading effect.

Start with a choker, or a 14inch necklace, then add a slightly longer chain, and finish with a longer pendant.

Personally we think name necklaces sit perfectly at 14 or 16 inches, but layering necklaces is all about personal preference, and theres no right or wrong way to style them.

You can also mix different chain styles like a delicate chain with a chunkier one.

How to wear a name necklace?

Once you have chosen the perfect name necklace, the next step is to decide whether you want to wear it alone or layer it with other necklaces. If you want to wear it by itself, make sure to adjust the length accordingly. The necklace should sit comfortably on your collarbone, and it shouldn't be too tight or move around too much.

On the other hand, if you're layering your name necklace with other necklaces, make sure to choose different lengths and textures to create a beautiful, layered look.

When it comes to pairing your name necklace with an outfit, the options are endless. You can wear it with a casual t-shirt and jeans for a minimalistic look, or you can dress it up by wearing it with a little black dress. A name necklace also adds a personal touch to any formal attire, making it the perfect accessory for a special occasion or event.
