If DIY-ing a gift for your Valentine is out of the cards this year, there are still plenty of ways to add a personal touch to whatever you decide to shower upon your significant other. You could give a gift that totally solidifies your cool couple status or take it one step further with something completely custom. If we had to choose one thing out of all the one-of-a-kind pieces around, we’d definitely pick monogrammed jewelry. Simple, sentimental, yet totally wearable, these 15 custom pieces will have your S.O. swooning way past the 14th.
1. Initial Heart Necklace ($54): Feeling especially lovey dovey this year? Put a rose gold heart between your initials on this dainty choker chain. Everyone at once now, Awww!
2. Acrylic Initial Bracelet ($32): Go bold with this acrylic letter charm bracelet. Be sure you know your boo’s favorite color before you place your order—you can choose from 20 different shades like Caribbean blue or shimmery Pearl.
3. Tri Love Initial Necklace ($36): If your S.O. never leaves home without some awesomely angular geometric jewelry, then this three-sided piece is the one for her. The hammered brass pendant makes it extra dreamy.
4. Custom Initial Necklace ($82): We’re totally obsessed with this unique initial necklace that is the epitome of casual cool. Plus, each bubble letter pendant is soldered and polished by hand. Way cool.
5. Enamel Letter Charm Necklace ($36): Over all things heart shaped? Opt for this crest charm that looks like something Wes Anderson would gift to his leading lady. The pastel color palette is right on point.
6. Circle Initial Earring ($5): Add an eclectic touch to your monogrammed accessories with this set that comes with one personalized circular stud and one rhinestone stud.
7. Acrylic Bar Pendant ($36): We’re not gonna lie, we jumped for joy when we saw a bar pendant necklace that wasn’t made out of a metal. If there’s any way you guys can add a plus sign, we’ll take about 30 in this turquoise color that say “B + C” ;)
8. Custom Initial Ring ($15): These stacking rings are seriously chic. From the rose gold ring face to the slightly faceted band, it’s an easy and elegant add on to any finger.
9. Initial Necklace ($115+): Feast your eyes on the A-list of monogram necklaces. Celebs like Eva Longoria and Audrina Patridge are drawn to the youthful typography and simple elegance of these initial charms, which can be dolled up with a diamond for an additional $50-60.
10. Silver Square Stacking Rings ($99): We’re smitten with these clever stacking rings that carve you and your S.O.’s initials—or an extra special message—into square tiered tabs. Trust us: you won’t see a monogrammed ring like this anywhere else.
11. Math Equation Earrings ($28): The cool thing about math is that there really is only one right answer to every problem. The equation definitely adds up on these adorable earrings.
12. Acrylic Block Monogram Necklace ($58): Classic monogram shape meets modern material in this cool acrylic block necklace. The options at BaubleBar seem endless: keep it simple with just the first and last initial, or go all out with the more traditional three letter look.
13. Silver Initial on Gold Cuff ($62): This personalized gold cuff looks totally timeless. With a contrast color initial and all-over matte finish, it’s both office appropriate and occasion-worthy.
14. Titanium Personalized Studs ($15): Iridescent everything is totally on trend, and you can even go there with this pair of personalized earrings. These teeny-tiny studs are made of hypoallergenic titanium, so don’t worry about risking it with a cheapo material.
15. Monogram Charm Necklace ($49): This might be the coolest monogram charm necklace we’ve ever seen. Bridal pearls are replaced with a curvy, stamped horseshoe and a small rhinestone charm to create this vintage-inspired piece.
