The beauty of a letter necklace lies in its special meaning as well as the endless styling options that it presents. You can spell out a word or a name, join the initials of partners and friends, and even combine with other charms such as a heart, a significant number, date, or star sign.

What makes letter necklaces special
Letter necklaces are often linked to personal history and therefore are most popular and trending today. Also called initial necklaces, these allow you to "be your own brand". It’s a beautiful and fashionable declaration of who you are, both in name and style.
Initial necklace pendants are often loaded with hidden meaning in plain sight! Who can forget Meghan Markle’s gold ‘M’ and ‘H’ initials on a delicate chain, subtly confirming her relationship with Prince Harry for the world press?
A variety of letter necklace styles and designs
A letter necklace is a beautiful piece of jewelry that combines an exquisitely handcrafted letter pendant with the perfect anchor chain. They can be of two kinds depending on the initial pendant attachment.
♦ A complete letter necklace, comprising a chain with an attached letter pendant, allows you to enjoy a unified design, as envisaged by the jewelry designer.
♦ Threadable letter pendants on letter necklace chains, allow multiple styling options by simply changing the anchor chain. This allows you to vary chain designs, length and material to create different looks for every occasion.
Letter necklace chains
Common to all the letter necklaces is that they are perfect to wear alone or beautiful to layer with other necklace chains of different lengths.
Letter necklace chain lengths come in lengths of 42–47cm, which is the short or princess length, or 45–55cm, which fits into the medium or matinee length. The short length hangs perfectly below the base of the neck, resting around the collar bone and suits petite slim women while the medium necklace sits beautifully on your chest pointing gracefully towards your cleavage and suits women of moderate height with a fuller figure.
